PhD in NURSING SCIENCES AND PUBLIC HEALTH
The Doctoral Degree in Nursing Sciences and Public Health aims to prepare researchers for both disciplines, who can contribute to the development of research methodology in nursing and public health. In their study path, the doctoral students acquire a solid foundation in the qualitative/quantitative research needed to develop the integration of disciplinary knowledge.
They must be able to conduct observational and/or experimental studies, integrate into multidisciplinary groups for research activities, and facilitate the integration of scientific knowledge with other disciplines.
During the PhD, the issues related to the health of citizens are mastered by providing theoretical reference and support for the decision-making process on how to deliver services, organization and training in preventive, curative and rehabilitative fields, by developing new health and welfare models.
Research is focused on social and health issues to identify health determinants and to implement prevention and control systems for infectious and chronic degenerative diseases, including also predictive models of disease risk and/or genetic susceptibility and cost-benefit analysis of the various possible prevention policies.
The convergence of medical/nursing professions and knowledge directed to public health, together with the interventions on the population regarding care, prevention and hospital support, appears strategic for the sustainability and the quality of the healthcare provided by the National Healthcare Service (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale, SSN). The following are the research lines:
- Health and organizational well-being of nurses and health care personnel;
- Self-care in people with heart failure and other chronic illnesses;
- Palliative care;
- Nursing Diagnosis and development of Nursing Minimum Data Set;
- Quality of life in people with stroke;
- Freelance nursing in Italy;
- Stress and burnout in nursing students;
- Adherence to therapy in people with osteoporosis.
