Clinical Trial Manager - PARCS/SPINOUT-F/STIFF-F
I run three surgical feasibility studies in the Surgical Interventions Trials Unit (SITU):
PARCS is a mixed methods feasibility study. Its aim is to determine the design of a randomised trial assessing the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a patch to augment surgical repair of the rotator cuff tendon that is both feasible and acceptable to stakeholders.
STIFF-F is a feasibility study to assess the practicability of a multicentre randomised controlled trial comparing intramedullary nailing (IN) with circular frame external fixation (CFEF) in patients with segmental tibial fractures.
SPINOUT-F is a feasibility study to inform the design and conduct of a multicentre randomised controlled trial of decompression with instrumented fusion compared to decompression only in patients with a specific type of spinal stenosis.
Prior to this role I worked as a Clinical Trial Assistant in the Oxford Respiratory Trials Unit, and as a Trainee Clinical Trial Manager with OCTRU. I graduated from Oxford University with a Masters degree in Biochemistry.
