Early Career Research Grant - Developing innovative and Inter professional models of care to improve patient adherence

Project Member(s): Garcia Cardenas, M.

Start year: 2015

Summary: The ECR Grant would allow me (1) to commence an innovative project to generate pilot data, which I would use to develop a research proposal and (2) develop international research connections and research projects. If awarded, I am planning to invest the funding in two core activities: 1. Generate pilot data to develop an international research proposal I¿ll focus on exploring and developing innovative and inter professional models of care to improve patient adherence. The data generated from this explorative qualitative research will allow me to apply for research grants and to test the model produced. 2. Conference funding I am keen to develop international research collaborations, particularly with KTP in The Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (PUC) and PhD cotutelle arrangements with the University of Granada, Spain. The UTS Research office has approved a Key Technology Partner Visiting Fellow application from PCU (Dr. Cristian Plaza) and I¿m already co-supervising three PhD Students from the University of Granada. I would link visits to these Universities with two international research conferences. These conferences would allow me to foster existing relationships and meet leading researches in my field of adherence, asthma and interprofessional models of collaboration and disseminate my early results of my research. The objective is to trigger the establishment of new research collaborations, with international experts in my research field. The conferences are: ¿ 76th International Pharmaceutical Federation Word Conference, Buenos Aires 2016 ¿ European Society for Patient Adherence, Compliance and Persistence 2016
