This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. 

This PhD project will be part of a NHMRC MRFF Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Mission funded study, which aims to develop and evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of a new Technology Assisted and Remotely Delivered Anxiety Psychotherapy Intervention for People living with Dementia and their Care Partners (Tech-CBT).

As part of the study, we will undertake a process evaluation to assess treatment fidelity, dose and contextual factors that may influence effectiveness, to inform future implementation in community and memory clinic settings. The PhD project will focus on developing the future implementation framework for Tech-CBT. This project would suit someone with a background in psychology or health sciences.
