Research opportunities for clinicians
Whether you want to build skills and knowledge for the next step in your career or help bring about meaningful change in clinical practice, postgraduate study is a wonderful opportunity to spend time investigating your field of interest.
Interventions early in life, including before birth, are now recognised as the most effective way of improving life-long health. While randomised trials are the gold standard for evaluating new interventions, long-term follow-up is critical to maximise the potential benefits.
That's where you come in.
We currently have masters and doctoral research projects available for health professionals interested in perinatal and child health. These important projects will investigate the long-term outcomes of several clinical interventions that could make a significant difference to the long-term health of mums and babies:
- Childhood outcomes after dextrose gel for preventing low glucose levels in babies
- Childhood outcomes after a trial of extra protein for babies born very preterm
- Adult outcomes after repeat doses of antenatal steroids from nationally collected data
- Do lower thresholds for diagnosis of gestational diabetes have later benefits for mothers and babies?
- What do families want to know about outcomes after trials of new treatments in pregnancy and the newborn?
