Maternal and infant health outcomes and health service utilisation
There is the opportunity to be involved in a range of projects utilising complexly linked perinatal health data to investigate a range of maternal, infant and child health issues.
The availability of routinely collected, and linked, population health data makes possible a range of projects on maternal, infant and child health, as well as the utilisation of health services. Identification of risks can lead to interventions during pregnancy and childhood, while health service utilisation information is vital for planning and policy development. Studies utilising linked population data require a high level of advanced data analysis. Candidates need demonstrated skill in quantitative research such as the design and completion of epidemiological studies and experience in data manipulation and advanced statistical techniques such as multivariable logistic regression.
Due to funding this opportunity is only available to domestic students.
