Coventry University is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship within the multi-disciplinary Well-being and the Arts theme within the Centre for Arts, Memory and Communities.
The British Medical Association and Health Foundation have drawn attention to the impact the COVID19 pandemic is, and will continue to have in a variety of ways on NHS staff. The specific focus of this PhD research will be the difficult, ethical decisions healthcare workers have had to make when managing patients during the pandemic. Some examples of this include who to prioritise for treatment, whether to treat if PPE is unavailable, whether to return to NHS roles for those who have left the profession, and the need to separate patients from loved ones.
The project will explore the challenges and emotional impacts experienced by health care workers in relation to ethical decision making. The successful candidate will respond to these experiences through arts-practise as well as developing evidence-based recommendations for the support needs of staff.
The project is anticipated to involve the following activities:
This is a fully-funded PhD studentship, including:
The successful candidate will receive comprehensive research training including technical, personal and professional skills.
