CRN PhD Scholarships, Palliative Care
The University of Notre Dame Australia has successfully secured $5.96 million in funding under the Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) Program for the research project: Healthy People, Healthy Country. The CRN project is managed by The University of Notre Dame Australia in collaboration with partners from other universities and institutes.
The three thematic areas of interest for our CRN project are;
1) Indigenous Health and Wellbeing,
2) Healthy Ageing and
3) Chronic Disease Management.
Sleep disturbance is a frequent and distressing problem for patients with advanced cancer, and also significantly affects family caregivers of these patients. The problem of caregiver exhaustion is a common reason for admission of patients into palliative care units.
Expressions of interest are invited for PhD projects focusing on measurement, description and/or management of sleep disturbance in palliative care patients. Applicants can be from any relevant discipline, including medicine (e.g. palliative care, oncology, sleep medicine), nursing, psychology or behavioural science.
