Little is known about the occupational stress experienced by medical radiation staff in Australia. 

Practitioners are invited to participate in a study to investigate the level of burnout among all medical radiation professionals in Australia, including radiographers, sonographers, nuclear medicine practitioners, radiation therapists, radiologists and radiation oncologists.

The survey only takes a few minutes to complete. Ethical approval has been obtained for this study by the Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee. All information will be entered anonymously and you will not be identifiable to the investigators at any stage.

Menzies Scholarship in the Allied Health Sciences
Posted 1st April 2010

SIR ROBERT MENZIES  MEMORIAL
RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP IN THE  ALLIED HEALTH SCIENCES


The Sir Robert Menzies Memorial Foundation wishes to stimulate research in the allied health sciences and is offering one or two research scholarships in this field.  The level of remuneration is $27,500 p.a. free of income tax.   

The award will be tenable at an Australian tertiary institution with adequate facilities for post-graduate research in the applicant's discipline.  The scholarship will be open to persons who will be working as full-time students in a research PhD program which is likely to be completed during the two year tenure of the scholarship. The applicant will generally have completed the first stage of the PhD project.  The successful applicant will be expected to take up the scholarship during the calendar year 2011.

The purpose of the scholarship is to try to improve the health of Australians by supporting an outstanding applicant from one of the non-medical allied health disciplines whose research is likely to fall outside the conventional areas of medical research. 

Application forms are available from University Scholarship Officers or on written request  from the Menzies Foundation at the address below or through the Menzies Foundation's web site at www.menziesfoundation.org.au.
