Program Type



We wish to understand how people with chronic mental illness/underdevelopment conditions, many of whom are socially isolated with multiple psyschosocial disadvantages, make health care and risk decisions and use health resources. Ultimately we wish to produce appropriate health and risk information that enhances decision making
This is envisaged as a mixed methods PhD with qualitative, quantitative and probably experimental risk / decision approaches with the candidate building upon the methods they currently use to provide a broad research training
It is suitable for a wide range of backgrounds with quantitative skills - psychology, social and health sciences.A Masters degree with a completed research component / thesis is required
