PhD Scholarship: 'Architectural design to improve Indigenous health outcomes', UQ School of Architecture

The School of Architecture at the University of Queensland invites applications for the following research project: 'Architectural design to improve Indigenous health outcomes' The goal of this research project is to improve the experience and use of healthcare architecture for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The aim is to identify the best design principles and practices through an analysis of existing clinics and hospitals and surveys of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander users. The overarching research question is: “When it comes to health service engagement, does design matter to Indigenous people, and how does it affect their decisions around accessing health care?” Professor Paul Memmott (p.memmott@uq.edu.au) and Tim O'Rourke (t.orourke@uq.edu.au) are the Chief Investigators.
