Interesting PhD Studentship

An interesting PhD studentship about "The expert patient: how the public make use of the Internet and electronic information sources in making choices about their health and treatment regimes" has just been made available by Bournemouth University.

Application forms etc are available from the universities Institute of Health and Community Studies and further information is available from: Dr Carol Bond Senior Lecturer, Health Informatics.

This looks very interesting and if I wasn't already doing my DPhil & could afford to pay the mortgage from the 3 year bursary of £12,900 p/a + fees, I would consider applying for it myself.
