UNSW PhD Scholarship Opportunity: Preventing burn injury for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are more likely than other Australian children to be hospitalized following a flame burn. Our current NHMRC funded study has found that if an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander child has a flame burn, they are less likely to have access to immediate first aid, which can impact time in hospital and recovery.

The focus of this PhD is to better understand the mechanism of injury and to work with community members and clinicians to co-design and trial a burn prevention and first aid program among

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families. The ideal candidate will be an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person with an undergraduate degree in allied health, medical sciences or nursing with honours. With experience in qualitative health research, the candidate will be skilled in the conduct of research working closely with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander families, communities and organisations. The candidate will be highly motivated, eager to work in a multidisciplinary team and committed to ongoing learning.
