The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing postdoctoral fellow
Interprofessional health-services research
The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing seeks a postdoctoral scholar to collaborate with Associate Dean for Research Jill Joseph to develop a program of interprofessional health-services research focused on access to, quality and safety of care. Opportunities for research include:
- Cancer care access – Develop a multi-component program to improve access to high-quality cancer care for under-resourced and disadvantaged patients.
- Medical errors - Design a program to reduce the frequency and costs of medical errors. The program must promote: a) transparent, timely and supportive disclosure of medical errors to affected patients and family members; b) accurate and timely reporting, followed by thorough investigation and response.
- Mortality – Design and implement a program to evaluate the effects of a decision-support tool for clinicians and patients/family members. The program would assess the likelihood of mortality in patients with advanced and disseminated malignancies.
- Collaboration in education - Develop and implement an Interprofessional Education and Practice Unit, which would deliver collaborative and patient/family-focused care.
Postdoctoral scholars can bring and/or develop their own specific interests in the area of interprofessional health-services research relevant to access to, quality and safety of care and would also have time to develop autonomous projects in addition to participation in existing programs of research.Click here for more information on the postdoctoral scholar positions.
