The role

This post is an excellent opportunity for an experienced qualitative researcher with interest in primary care and health services research to work on a large, pragmatic cluster randomised controlled trial of practice-level intervention, with an embedded mixed-methods process evaluation.

The project, funded by the NIHR Health Service and Delivery Programme, has three core objectives: successful implementation of the BRISMED toolkit in general practices, comparison of clinical effectiveness of the BRISMED toolkit with usual care, alongside an evaluation of the cost implications, and assessment of acceptability to, and experience of, patients and practitioners.

They will also lead on analysing the qualitative data and disseminating findings. The post holder will work independently but also as part of a wider BRISMED team, and under the direction of the Principal Investigator, Dr Deborah McCahon and Qualitative Lead Investigator, Professor Katrina Turner.
