About the role

You will work collaboratively and independently as part of a research team to achieve defined milestones and produce high quality research for a project on healthcare workforce wellbeing within the implementation theme of the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East Midlands.

Through qualitative methodology, the project will:

  • Review existing research related to workforce wellbeing intervention implementation
  • Explore the experiences of individuals tasked with implementing such interventions
  • Understand how they prioritize interventions and the barriers and enablers to the successful implementation of interventions

The project will help to understand how to make wellbeing interventions a ‘normal’ part of practice, sharing findings across practice, policy, and academic audiences. Improving access to interventions for staff will help to improve their experiences of work and their wellbeing, and have a positive impact on patient experience, outcomes and on broader service delivery.
