A prestigious White Rose network studentship focusing on development and testing of an intervention to build resilience and independence for older people with frailty is now open to applications. The PhD studentship plans to investigate the potential role of ambulance services in reducing avoidable transitions to hospital for older people living with frailty and care home residents, using a range of novel, integrated methodological approaches.
The opportunity is funded by the NIHR ARC and White Rose Network. A full award paying Home/EU fees and maintenance at the standard UKRI rates (stipend £15,285 and fees £4,407 in 2020-21) for the first year of study is available (renewable for a second and third year of study subject to satisfactory academic progress).
