Summary:

As DUTY Project Manager, I continue to be responsible for the coordination of the study; this involves supporting the writing of the papers and working towards methods of introducing the clinical algorithm into clinical practice. I coordinated submitting the associated documentation for the report and papers. I have assisted other team members in updating the ethics committee for the ongoing research projects. I was the contact for, and developed the plans agreed by, the NIHR HTA for the retention of an underspend of funding post submission for dissemination. I continue to be responsible for the financial monitoring and I am assisting the finance team with the final financial reconciliation. I have continued to be the link between the University’s Research and Enterprise Development team for the recognition and protection of the Intellectual Property arising from the study. I have also been the ‘public face’, liaising with parents who have contacted the University with queries.

I was responsible for overseeing the archiving of the DUTY paper data collection forms in Bristol. I have presented two elements of the DUTY results at conferences, following the submission of abstracts that were peer reviewed.

Work History

Reliable and dependable individual with responsibility for overseeing 7 studies, both current and new. I am the primary managerial contact, with responsibility for financial monitoring (circa £3.5 million including the overall DUTY budget), for all studies within the Bristol Infection Studies Management (BISM) profile for the University of Bristol. I am involved in preparation for the ARCHIE trial (testing antibiotics to reduce the symptom severity for children at risk of flu and flu like symptoms) and I have written the job description(s) for the ATAFUTI trial (testing Alternative Treatments for Adult Female UTIs). I am the coordinator for RuBICoN, the respiratory HIT, with responsibility for financial monitoring, strategic operationalisation, and development of business plans, Non Disclosure Agreement wording, Health Integration Team (HIT) communications and PPI liaison. I line manage the Coordinators for a study for the diagnosis of cancer (CANDID) and a trial looking at alternative treatments to antibotics for sore throat (TOAST) providing support and advice, overseeing recruitment monitoring, and acting as trial contact when the Coordinator is unavailable, including actioning recruitment follow up procedures for TOAST. I regularly liaise with the Primary Care Research Network in order to optimise multicentre working with known collaborators. I have been responsible for the completion of the Research Registration Checklist for each project as we have been given the supporting documentation from the lead centres and I have contacted the insurance officer to ensure Bristol is indemnified for the research we undertake.

I have supported a member of the RuBICoN team giving a presentation to the Care Seminar of APCRC that involved NHS professionals and members of the public. I have produced posters for the PCRN Incentive event schemes to attract practices to support the projects, some in conjunction with the lead centres, others not. I also have assisted my...

have assisted other team members in updating the ethics committee for the ongoing research projects. I was the contact for, and developed the plans agreed by, the NIHR HTA for the retention of an underspend of funding post submission for dissemination. I continue to be responsible for the financial monitoring and I am assisting the finance team with the final financial reconciliation. I have to be the link between the University's Research and Enterprise Development team for the recognition and protection of the Intellectual Property arising from the DUTY study. This has involved writing the permitted purpose of the Non Disclosure Agreement, creating the DUTY benefits realisation plan and a 'contract' for the exploitation of the DUTY outputs. I have also been the 'public face' of DUTY, liaising with parents who have contacted the University with queries. I organised the DUTY stand at the Festival of Nature event in Bristol, where we disseminated results and encouraged children to participate in research.. I located the company that may help to produce an IT 'flag' to inform practitioners of the clinical prediction rule developed by DUTY, and I have drafted an outline research protocol for the introduction of this 'flag'. I was responsible for overseeing the archiving of the DUTY paper data collection forms in Bristol. This included writing the SOP, organising the paperwork, ensuring the anonymity of participants and the efficient, effective labelling of the stored documentation. I have presented two elements of the DUTY results at conferences, following the submission of abstracts that were peer reviewed. The 'positivity' paper was presented at SW Society of Academic Primary Care 2013 and the prediction rule at General Practice Research Infection Network 2013.

Responsible for the co-ordination and link the team in the overall DUTY study, currently this is ensuring the writing is happening in a timely fashion and the papers are going to be converted into chapters within the final report to the NIHR HTA. Before my role included managing the Bristol centre staff, both administrative support staff and assisting with the oversight of the nurses roles, ensuring that the study was performed to ICH-GCP standards; updating the ethics committee of any changes, asking for extensions to both ethical approval and the time allocated by the funder and producing reports to the funder. I was responsible for safe closure of the study with supervising both data cleaning and archiving. I have been responsible for the financial monitoring and reconciliation as we move to the end of the study. I have been the link between the University's Research and Enterprise Development team for the recognition and protection of Intellectual Property arising from the DUTY study. I have also been the 'public face' of DUTY when required when parents have contacted the University.

Projects

RuBICoN HIT

The RuBICON HIT is a collaboration between the two Bristol Universities, the City council, the 3 CCGs, the three acute trusts (including mental health), and industry to reduce the burden of infections (specifically respiratory) in the community and NHS. I coordinate the whole thing and lead on a project whereby we are looking to promote self care to parents by providing advice on common illnesses.

DUTY

The DUTY study was a NIHR HTA funded project (£3.2 million) to determine the characteristics of children >5 years of age that may have a UTI. I was the study manager in the lead University and managed the whole budget and coordinated the 26 authors writing the final report and associated papers.
