PhD oppotunity- SToP trial (See, Treat, Prevent) scabies and skin sores

Posted 5 years ago

Applications are being sought for a PhD position led by researchers from the Telethon Kids Institute, in partnership with Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services Council (KAMS) and Western Australia Country Health Service (WACHS).

The study involves evaluation of a stepped wedge cluster randomised controlled trial assessing whether streamlined, evidence based treatment of impetigo with cotrimoxazole and scabies with ivermectin will have an impact on reducing the burden of skin infections in Aboriginal school children in the Kimberley.
