    This position will spearhead a randomized controlled trial across diverse hospital sites in Melbourne and regional areas, evaluating interventions designed to reduce hospital readmissions and improve medication safety.

    As a Research Fellow, you will conduct interviews, facilitate co-design workshops and implement feasibility studies to refine strategies for optimal impact, providing the foundation for engaging with healthcare professionals, patients and families within the Australian healthcare system.

The position requires an honours degree and a doctoral qualification in a health-related discipline, such as nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychology, pharmacy or health sciences, or equivalent qualification. The successful candidate will also be experienced in interacting with health professionals, patients and families in hospital environments within the Australian healthcare system.
