Commonwealth Department of Health - Medical Research Future Fund - Models of Care to Improve the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Acute Care

Improved respiratory support in remote settings for children: A paediatric acute respiratory intervention study (PARIS), PARIS on Country.

Indicative Funding
$1,630,153 over 5 years (administered by Griffith University)
Respiratory illnesses are the most frequent reason for non-elective hospital admissions in children <5 years. Acute respiratory failure (ARF) is the common endpoint for many underlying specific diagnoses such as bronchiolitis, asthma and pneumonia. In FNQ approximately 50-70% of mostly indigenous children with ARF require transfer to a tertiary hospital, compared to 10-15% of these children in SEQ. We aim to introduce a measured model of care using a comprehensive respiratory care package for children with ARF in remote hospitals in Queensland. The aim is to reduce the number of transfers and offload the pressure on the emergency/retrieval systems.

Australian College of Rural & Remote Medicine - Education Research Grant

Retention of JCU basic medical sciences influence on entry knowledge testing and need for early educational intervention of post graduate GP registrars

Indicative Funding
$149,425 over 1 year
This project proposes the use of a basic science exam that serves as a diagnostic tool to aid early identification and remediation of gaps in the learning of new GP registrars. Given that assessment drives learning, the inclusion of a formative basic science retention exam in the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) assessment schedule for new GP registrars can be used to strengthen learning of the basic sciences and their application to clinical practice. Additionally, the study will aid the identification of contextual and cultural differences in terms of knowledge gaps and facilitate the development of tailored interventions to improve registrars? integration of basic sciences into clinical practice.
