We wish to determine the reduction in health care costs and improvement in quality of life using this new technique. A cost-benefit analysis will be performed using this data to determine whether the new technique is more cost effective. Ethics is already approved for the study to begin.
Involvement in this study would data collection, analysis and manuscript preparation aiming for a high impact journal such as JACC (above). Additional techniques learned would be health economic analysis including use of sophisticated decision-tree software (TreeAge). These skills would be very useful for future research.
There are other similar research projects which are available such as the economic impact on outcome of focused cardiac ultrasound before hip fracture surgery, the economic impact of recovery after cardiac surgery in patients receiving steroids: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled sub-study. These could be done instead or grouped together to form a great PhD.
