Career Development Awards 2021

The Health Research Council announced their annual Career Development Awards on Friday 12 November. Amongst the many recipients were two Auckland DHB clinicians.

The funding from these awards supports New Zealand’s most promising emerging researchers to undertake high-quality research and develop the skills needed to address current and future health challenges.

Dr Mike Nicholls received a Clinical Research Training Fellowship.

The aim of the research is to determine whether implementation of insider-led quality improvement systems in New Zealand emergency departments is associated with a reduction in burnout and improved wellbeing among staff, and an improvement in healthcare quality for patients.

Dr Lyn Sadler received the Clinical Practitioner Research Fellowship.

The research aim is to support the future of perinatal epidemiology in Tāmaki Makaurau and Aotearoa. The proposal includes the development of a perinatal databank of maternity and neonatal data from the last 30 years and three research projects in the area of maternal and neonatal morbidity.
