Clinical Trial Manager
I am a Clinical Trials Manager responsible for the World Hip Trauma Evaluation (WHiTE) Cohort Study and the embedded randomised controlled trial, WHiTE Four.
The WHiTE research projects are focused on the management of femoral fractures in older patients. The cohort study is an observational study which has been running since 2012 and has recently moved its sponsorship from Warwick to Oxford. This study collects routine data and patient-reported outcomes of all recruited hip fracture patients over the age of 60 in 17 NHS secondary care centres in England. WHiTE Four is one of the RCTs embedded into the cohort study and its focus is on the management of trochanteric fractures of the hip with sliding hip screws, comparing standard sliding hip screws with the X-Bolt Hip System. This trial is currently recruiting in 9 secondary care centres across England.
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 worked as an acting Trial Coordinator for the MiniDex trial and an Administrative Assistant with the PITCHES trial, both at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (NPEU) at the University of Oxford. I am Canadian, and my background is in education and administration. I moved to the UK in June 2015 from Thailand, where I lived for 13 years.
