Cancer Survivorship & Telehealth

PhD Scholarship in Cancer Survivorship & Telehealth

Expressions of interest are invited from outstanding graduates in health-related fields who have relevant experience and are highly motivated to join the dynamic research group at the UQ Centre for Online Health and undertake a full-time PhD project to advance our understandings of how to support cancer survivors using telehealth.

Cancer survivors require ongoing care, support and monitoring after treatment completion. Survivorship care is increasingly delivered using information and communication technologies (known as telehealth) by a multidisciplinary workforce, however the preparedness of the workforce, and the suitability of different models of care, is unclear. Telehealth may be particularly beneficial as a mode of survivorship care delivery for survivors in regional and rural areas, whose care is shared across providers in primary, secondary and tertiary care across locations.

As part of the formal application process to UQ, the student will work with the relevant Supervisors, to articulate a research question within the scope of this topic.
