BSc (Hons), MSc
Clinical Trial Manager - BOOST and OPAL
My role is to coordinate the recently funded BOOST (Better Outcomes for Older people with Spinal Trouble) programme of research. BOOST is a package of research projects focussed on the management of spinal problems in older people. Within the BOOST programme I am responsible for the implementation of a large cohort study, OPAL - the Oxford Pain, Activity and Lifestyle study, recruiting from primary care centres across England. I am also responsible for a randomised controlled trial, BOOST, recruiting from NHS secondary care centres across England. The BOOST RCT also includes a qualitative interview study which is looking to gather participant experiences. My work involves writing and maintaining up-to-date study documentation and liaising with relevant key staff, collaborators and researchers to ensure that all aspects of the research comply with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and standard operating procedures.
Prior to joining the Critical Care, Trauma, and Rehabilitation (CCTR) Trials Group I was a Clinical Trials Project Manager at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Oxford. I have a background in project and programme management in clinical research and, sustainability.
