Relevant domains of research inquiry range from evaluation of population screening initiatives; interventions to improve diagnostic accuracy within primary care; through to issues of management in the context of a clinician-patient interaction to system level issues to do with the organisation, financing and performance of the health system, including COPD management of indigenous and ethnic minorities within Australia.
Lung Foundation Australia invites applications from medical and scientific graduates who will be a resident in Australia throughout the period of the research program. The Fellowship is available as either a one or two year award, with a value of $A80,000 per annum. The funds are to cover the salary (including on-costs) for the successful research fellow and for no other purpose.
