We are looking for someone with a PhD or equivalent and research experience, to join our team on the Humanising Services research project which overall is a two year project funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing. The aim of the research is to develop Humanising Services and design a new transferable leadership strategy for improving ‘what matters to older people’ to enhance dignity in care

The research is being carried out at two centres (Bournemouth and Hull). At each site we have developed working groups of patients, clinical staff and researchers who together are using an action research approach to develop the leadership strategy. The groups are considering how the Humanization framework (Todres and Galvin & Holloway, 2009) can be used to assess and develop dignity in caring in stroke services (Bournemouth) and dermatology services (Hull). This post has been set up to provide support for the overall analysis of the project and provide liaison between the research teams in Bournemouth and Hull.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the day to day running of the overall analysis of data already collected and also contribute to further analysis of the outcomes and processes involved in the research, tool kit development and dissemination. Support from the research leads will be provided throughout. The post-holder is expected to have research knowledge/experience and will be given support in developing knowledge and skills related specifically to this project and to humanisation principles. They will also have the opportunity to contribute to academic publications and conference presentations.

For further information and an informal discussion please contact either Dr Caroline Ellis-Hill, Senior Lecturer, Bournemouth University or Dr Fiona Cowdell, Reader, University of Hull Or visit our website.

This post is available on a 0.4 FTE basis and is fixed-term until February 2016.
