ESRC Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) collaborative is offering Doctoral Studentship on Understanding wellbeing and wellbeing enhancement for people living with and beyond chronic disease. It provides postgraduate students with high-quality social science research training.
Background and Rationale ,Chronic diseases have no known cure, are long-term and progressive (diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, hypertension and cancer). Chronic disease leads to debilitating physical and psychological comorbidity and social and emotional difficulties in adjusting to life. Chronic disease impairs wellbeing. Evidence shows positive effects of interventions fostering resilience, cohesion and coping (employment, peer and group support and self-management). The precise individual factors and intervention mechanisms which enhance wellbeing for diverse people living with chronic disease are less well known. Wellbeing may have a protective role in reducing risk of chronic disease and enhancing quality of life. Understanding and addressing the complex individual, sociocultural, political and environmental factors influencing the enhancement of wellbeing for those living with chronic disease is significant for effective decision making in health policy, health systems, and professional practice in the wellbeing and health sectors as well as for supporting those living with chronic disease.
This project reflects the shared interests of Brunel University London scholars and colleagues at the WWCW for advancing understanding of wellbeing, improving wellbeing and addressing wellbeing inequalities.
