Tropical Australian Academic Health Centre Limited - Research Seed Grants

Immersive virtual reality in a northern Queensland haemodialysis unit: A cross-over randomised controlled feasibility trial.

Indicative Funding
$18,000 over 2 years (administered by THHS)
Summary
This study will explore the feasibility and acceptability of an immersive VR experience for patients attending a north Queensland haemodialysis service and provide information to inform a multi-centre randomised controlled trial. Over the 4 week intervention period, participants will be offered a headset with vision of the local natural environment and with audio. Outcomes will be measured by participants: acceptability and usability of VR; attendance at scheduled dialysis sessions and adherence to lifestyle modifications; wellbeing, anxiety and depression; adverse events such as nausea. The feasibility and acceptability of the equipment from the clinicians? perspectives will also be explored.

Whitsunday Regional Council - Contract Research

Whitsunday Regional Council - Mitigation and Loss Reduction.

Indicative Funding
$42,750 over 1 year
Summary
Develop and implement a resilience rating framework for small businesses. This initial phase will identify and scope aspects of the program and sufficient detail of the Rating Framework to enable the feasibility of the concept to be determined. Some elements will be estimates which will require deeper research and quantification in subsequent stages. ? Review of background research and peril-specific risk attributes ? leveraging existing work plus a limited desktop study of latest research to inform the methodology and framework (minimise task input to meet timeframe). ? Design rating framework and quantify elements sufficient to inform the business case.
Investigators
David Henderson and Anne Swinbourne in collaboration with Daniel Smith (College of Science & Engineering and College of Healthcare Sciences)

National Rugby League - Rugby League Research Committee

Identifying the impact of cognitive fitness on decision-making capacity of elite NRL officials

Indicative Funding
$11,369 over 1 year
Summary
Officiating team sport matches requires engagement of complex physical and mental/cognitive processes. Superior cognitive fitness may assist with management of match stresses for greater decision-making. This project will: 1) identify the current cognitive fitness levels of elite NRL officials; and 2) examine the impact of cognitive and/or physical stress on elite NRL official?s decision-making proficiency; 3) clarify how cognitive fitness level moderates elite NRL officials? decision-making proficiency. This project will provide recommendations to enhance the decision-making capacity of elite NRL officials with reference to cognitive fitness.
