Research Fellow - Ambulatory Care
The vision for this new research group, led by Professor Dan Lasserson, is to generate the evidence for the NHS to deliver an acute medical care pathway that maximises ambulatory care. The NHS Five Year Forward View, the Royal College of Physicians’ Future Hospital Programme and the Primary Care Workforce commission all call for greater integration between primary and secondary care and our research group will tackle one of the biggest challenges for the NHS – how to meet the rising demand for acute medical care with a static or indeed shrinking hospital bed base. We will test how acute assessment, treatment and monitoring can be delivered out of hospital and deliver an improved patient and carer experience. This role in our emerging research group will enable the successful applicant to build on their doctoral research and develop into an independent researcher under the supervision of Prof Dan Lasserson. We plan to conduct studies in acute clinical settings using quantitative and qualitative techniques, including ethnography, as well as large database epidemiology. You will have an unrivalled opportunity to undertake impactful research that will support the NHS in a time of rapid change and improve patient and carer experience of acute care.
