Developing a 0-19 public health nursing service for Dorset

Country: United Kingdom;

Deadline: 21.07.2015



This Phd will offer an excellent opportunity to influence and develop public health nursing to tackle inequalities in health. The student will undertaken a global systematic review of what works to tackle inequalities in health relevant to the public health nursing role and will then help to redesign the service in Dorset. To date no such systematic review and mapping exercise has been undertaken in the UK or elsewhere globally so the academic impact of this research will be substantial and add significantly to what we know about how public health nurses can reduce inequalities in health. The research will be shared through international academic and practice conference papers and international peer reviewed journal papers. In addition international open access online webinars will share and discuss findings on the completion of the study to enable the findings to be shared with developing countries.
