15 PhD positions to study the psychological and technological challenges of informal care

 

Apply before: November 30th, 2018
Institute: ENTWINE network (Netherlands)
Job specification: Informal caregivers provide unpaid care to relatives or acquaintances with a chronic illness, disability, or other long-lasting care need. Mostly due to increased longevity and medical advances, the care needs of individuals for long-term care rise rapidly while the availability of informal caregivers decreases. Since the European health care systems rely heavily on the provision of informal care, this so called ‘Care Gap’ will create problems for their sustainability.

Postdoctoraal onderzoeker IQ healthcare

 

Apply before: October 24th, 2018
Institute: Radboud UMC (Netherlands)
Job specification: De effectiviteit van veel medische behandelingen hangt in hoge mate af van het gedrag van de patiënt. Als onderdeel van een behandeling worden mensen niet alleen vaak geacht langdurig medicatie te gebruiken, maar ook stoppen met roken, minderen van alcohol, gezonder eten, en voldoende bewegen zijn belangrijke voorspellers voor hoe goed medische behandelingen werken. De medische zorg in Nederland is al van een zeer hoge standaard. Wat betreft de ondersteuning bij gezond gedrag, lijkt er nog veel winst te behalen. Dit project beoogt daaraan bij te dragen binnen de context van de 2e lijn (ziekenhuis zorg).
