Location: Bradford

Summary of Project

We are inviting applications to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024-25 for a National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Research Collaboration (PSRC) Scholarship. This scholarship is open to UK applicants and covers tuition fees plus £19,237 annual maintenance. This prestigious NIHR-funded award provides an exciting opportunity to pursue postgraduate research in health services and patient safety and become a member of the NIHR Academy.

The focus of this PhD will be on establishing an evidence base about how safety in monitored and measured when care is delivered at home and on developing solutions to meet the needs of patients and the health service to safely move the focus of care away from acute settings. To achieve this, you will work in partnership with patients and families and health and social care staff. The anticipated outputs will support patients and carers to be safer in their own home and to address the needs of the health service to move the focus of care away from acute settings. The aims of the PhD are therefore to:

  • Understand what measures of safety are currently used or can be adapted to be used when care is delivered at home.
  • Establish how safety is created and monitored when care is delivered at home and how this differs to when care is delivered in hospital or residential care settings.
  • Understand the risks inherent in the home setting and how care providers understand and manage those risks.
  • Create tools to support the management of safety when care is delivered at home.
