UCL PhD studentship April 2017: Conversation analysis of communication with the relatives of hospice patients:


Details:

DL: 26th Oct. 2016

As part of a wider Marie Curie Programme Grant we have secured funding for a 3-year PhD studentship at University College London. Funding begins April 2017. The project will focus on conversations between medics and family members (typically in the 48-24hr period before end of life) - examining the communication of uncertainly in prognostication as well as other sequential features arising in end of life conversations with family members. The work will take place in one London hospice with opportunities for additional ethnographic work. A longer term aim will be to develop learning tools for medics in this field. The student will be supervised by Steven Bloch (Senior Lecturer in Language and Cognition, UCL) and Paddy Stone (Marie Curie Chair in palliative and end of life care, UCL). Ruth Parry is a co-researcher and a member of the steering committee, providing strong links with the VERDIS project. Closing date: 26th October 2016.
