Cost effectivesness of pre-hospital ambulance care

Description 
An opportunity is open to a suitable applicant to conduct a fully funded full time PhD within Monash University’s Centre for Research Excellence in Pre-hospital Emergency Care in collaboration with Ambulance Victoria. The successful applicant will apply a health economic lens to two unique Victorian data sets. These are the Victorian Ambulance Cardiac Arrest Registry and a linked data set involving all ambulance presentations, ED presentations and hospital admissions in Victoria over a four-year period. The applicant will look at factors such return on investment of the cardiac arrest registry, cost effectiveness of different interventions such as public access defibrillation and CPR. Other studies may involve the modelled impact and cost of reduced ambulance response times. The successful applicant would possess post-graduate qualifications in either public health, health services research, epidemiology or health economics. We are looking for someone who has a strong academic track- record and/ or who ideally already has a number of publications. The applicant must possess strong quantitative research skills.
