Trial Co-ordinator: Relationships in Good Hands Trial

I am the Trial Coordinator for the Oxford arm of the Relationships in Good Hands Trial.  This is a trial examining the effectiveness of Dyadic Dynamic Psychotherapy in children who have maltreatment associated psychiatric problems and are now in care.  The project is led by the University of Glasgow and my role is a mixture of project management and research support for the qualitative aspects of the study.

I have an eclectic career path.  Before joining the Department of Psychiatry, I worked with the Critical Care Research Group at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences managing the large Wellcome Trust/Department of Health "Hospital Alerting Via Electronic-Noticeboard" (HAVEN) project aiming to identify patients at risk of deterioration in hospital. Prior to that, I was a librarian for ten years and my first degree was in history, before an MSc in Library and Information Management.  I am now studying for a Masters in Health Research.  I am a Fellow of the Association of University Administrators and am a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals.  I have a strong interest in mental health, particularly perinatal mental health and mental ill-health in the workplace, so it is particularly exciting to now be part of this department.
