Wellbeing and Performance of Health Professionals and Other Public Sector Workers
Dr Diane Skåtun of the Health Economics Research Unit and Prof Keith Bender of the Department of Economics invite applications for a funded PhD on the topic of worker wellbeing and worker performance in healthcare related occupations as well as other public sector workers. Students with a strong empirical economics or health economics background are encouraged to apply.
In a time when public sector resources are diminishing and yet the demand for public services is increasing, public sector workers are experiencing increased stress in providing appropriate levels of performance given these increasingly binding constraints. This is perhaps most keenly observed in the health service, although no part of the public sector workforce is immune. The main goal of this dissertation, therefore, would be to examine the wellbeing of public sector workers such as health professionals, comparing their wellbeing across a number of public sector occupations.
