Our colleagues at The University of Plymouth’s Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, NIHR PenCLAHRC and Public Health at Cornwall Council have a new MPhil/PhD Studentship available for full-time or part-time study.
The study will focus on whether the social prescribing of horticulture therapy is feasible, acceptable and associated with positive outcomes for higher functioning autistic adults. It will also ask what lessons can be drawn from this about the theory and practice of engaging marginalised groups in health services.
The studentship is based at NIHR PenCLAHRC in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Plymouth and is fully funded for three years from the 1st of October 2019.
