  • Why rcs ilps
    Why RCS ILPs ?

    • As a RSC ILP student you could be:

      • Interacting with clinical staff members and learning new clinical skills

      • Being mentored in understanding a sub-specialist area of medicine or surgery

      • Gain increased levels of clinical or translational research experience

      • Supervised by RCS PhD scientists and rural clinicians

      • Supported by dedicated RSC research officers

      • Access to research academics A/Prof Craig McLachlan; Dr Martin Rees; PhD students with diverse expertise

        • e.g. Experimental design, Ethics submissions, Statistical modelling, biomarker studies, genetics, publication writing assistance; survey design, data collection, data analysis.

    • ILP research opportunities and experience

      • Previous ILP students have been successful in having papers accepted for presentation at Australasia-wide meetings, and publication in peer-reviewed medical journals. 4 submitted and under review.

      • Coffs Harbour Health Campus has recently received a $1.5M grant from Health Workforce Australia to promote intra-professional learning.

      • 2014 projects are again expected to yield peer-reviewed publications;

      • Professional research culture within the Mid North Coast Cancer Institute: clinicians and academics have extensive publications records and a history of significant grant support.

      • Highest number of PhD trained clinicans across rural campuses

    • Examples of ILP Projects for 2014:

    • - Mid North Coast cancer Institute more than 7 projects on offer focusing on radiation oncology outcomes across breast, brain, prostate, lung.

      • Simulated learning environment and skills training- effectiveness of Intraprofessional training. Research questions on ‘Simulated Learning environments’ – a state of the art centre with high fidelity simulators and mannequins.

      • Patient education: mobile Health technology for rural patients. Addresses the adoption of handheld devices for patient education in the rural setting. Project involves the development and validation of an appropriate tool to assess patients’ health education needs

    Research opportunities and experience on site to provide ILP support

    Focus on clinical research, large range of specialists in Wagga who are interested in supervising research projects

    Previous projects:

    treatment of morbidly obese by GPs in rural setting (General Practice)

    stroke thrombolysis (Neurology unit)

    impact of bariatritic surgery on diet and exercise programs (Bariatric Surgery)

    Two students last year selected projects in the field of bariatric surgery for their ILP projects. Within a week of starting their projects, they were observing bariatric procedures being performed.

    Current RSC student is creating a significant cardiology database of the last 1000 patients presented to the cath lab. Multiple research papers anticipated. Data will create opportunities for future ILP projects (data mining)
