School of Medicine, NUI Galway

Ref. No. NUIG 179-18

 Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a full-time, fixed term position as a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Discipline of General Practice in the School of Medicine at the National University of Ireland, Galway.  This position is funded by the Health Research Board and is available from 1st January 2019 for a two year (24 months) period.

 

Information on the Research Project:

Most assessments of quality of care in Irish healthcare services are focused on healthcare workers’ opinions, statistics, or investigating large errors. However, these assessments fail to consider patients’ unique insights into quality of care and how patients can support improvement in services. For example, patients have knowledge about interactions with healthcare workers, whether care was patient-centred, and whether a patient's dignity was respected. Patients often write complaints about care with the aim of helping the service improve care for future patients. Sometimes these complaints may be about small issues, but they can also be about major problems.

 

More than 12,000 complaints are written annually about Irish healthcare organisations. While these complaints receive individual responses, there is no focus on analysing these complaints together and using this data to learn about the key issues in specific services and the healthcare system. This means that patients’ desire, and ability, to contribute to identifying problems are prevented.

 

This project will tell us what patients complain about, how serious their complaints are, and will allow for the identification of hotspots and blindspots in quality and safety in the Irish healthcare system. The data collected will be analysed and discussed by relevant stakeholders (patients, healthcare workers, policy makers) that will work together to decide how the feedback patients provide, and identified hotspots and blindspots, in healthcare complaints can be most effectively used to make changes that will improve patient care.

 

Job Description:

The successful candidate will be the lead postdoctoral researcher responsible for the day-to-day coordination and management of the study working closely with the PI (Dr Paul O’Connor) and the HSE’s National Verification and Assurance Division. They will join an inter-disciplinary research team with expertise in behaviour change, human factors, and patient safety. The candidate will be supported in their professional development, be able to avail of a range of training opportunities, given opportunities to develop professional (e.g., teaching, research supervision), and have the potential to write first-author journal articles.

 

Duties:

The successful candidate will be responsible for: the day-to-day running of the project, classifying and analysing complaints about patient care, engaging stakeholders, and the preparation of manuscripts for publication. The post holder will be required to travel to Limerick in order to collect and analyse data. Any required travel and subsistence will be funded through the project.
