Use of complementary medicine self-care for dementia amongst CALD communities
The use of complemenatry medicine (CM) self-care – including a wide range of traditional and complementary health care practices and products not generally associated with the conventional public health care system or medical curriculum – is currently a largely hidden area of health-seeking behaviour.
The Australian Research Centre in Complementary and Integrative Medicine (ARCCIM) is seeking candidates for a full-time PhD scholarship to examine the use of complementary medicine self-care for dementia amongst culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. CM self-care use holds significant opportunities and challenges for the safe, effective and coordinated care of those with chronic illness, especially with regards to CALD communities and this PhD scholarship aims to directly help address this research gap.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and hard-working candidate with an interest and training in qualitative health research methods.
Value: approx $25,000 per year
Duration: 3 years
The PhD is funded via an ARC competitive grant and will provide excellent opportunity for a talented and enthusiastic researcher to join our dynamic, world-leading and growing team. ARCCIM currently houses 12 full time researchers and is supervising over 25 PhD students. The ARCCIM program has attracted over $11M in external grant funding over recent years including over 20 ARC and NHMRC grants and is the world-leading critical public health and health services research centre examining complementary medicine and health care.
