Theme 4: Behaviour within and beyond the healthcare setting
Projects offered under this theme aim to identify the socio- economic conditions and behavioural attitudes that drive the spread of resistant bacteria to help develop and evaluate policies and strategies to mitigate and manage AMR and the stewardship of antibiotics.
Applications for two PhD studentships available at the University of Bristol (deadline 23.59 on 22 June 2020) and at the University of Dundee (deadline 30 June 2020) are open. Please see table below.
This research theme aims to:
- identify specific economic conditions, social norms and attitudes relating to antibiotics in order to develop context appropriate strategies
- evaluate interventions to control/prevent the spread of resistant bacteria
- assess the wider costs and benefits of behaviour change strategies
- link surveillance data to stewardship practices to understand variance in impact
- develop and evaluate economic and regulatory models that balance the appropriate use of drugs and the mitigation of AMR while appropriately rewarding innovation
- consider the role of existing and new business models in encouraging innovation
