I joined AUHE as a research assistant in health economics following the completion of my MSc in health economics and health policy from University of Birmingham in 2016.
I have been involved in several project, including;
- POC creatinine: evaluation of a streamlined kidney function screening pathway
- Chest X-Ray versus Low Dose Computerised Tomography for detection of lung cancer in symptomatic patients presenting in primary care: systematic review
- TIGA-CUB: evaluation of the use of psychoanalytic child psychotherapy versus treatment as usual for children aged 5-11 with treatment-resistant conduct disorders and their primary carers
- ProstaPalp: early economic evaluation determining the cost-effectiveness of using the ProstaPalp device to aid the diagnosis of prostate cancer
- Cambridge Oncometrix: early economic evaluation exploring the cost-effectiveness of the Prostate Liquid Biopsy Test to aid the diagnosis of prostate cancer
- Telonostix: review providing insight of how a new prognostic biomarker test might be introduced to the current testing pathway for chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.
- LACES: evaluation of laparoscopic colorectal emergency surgery versus open surgery.
- SAFARI: evaluation of sacral nerve stimulation versus the FENIX™ magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) device for adult faecal incontinence
- MIA Kheiron: evaluating the use of a new technology called Mia™,which uses artificial intelligence deep learning methodology for the early detection of breast cancer.
I am currently undertaking research assessing the appropriateness of using parent/primary carers as proxy-respondents for reporting health-related quality of life in children.
