I joined the Clinical Trials Research Unit in January 2017 as a Research Assistant, after having completed an MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Nottingham.

I am currently working on two projects in CTRU; OPTION-DM and BEADS.

OPTION-DM is a CTIMP investigating the most effective initial treatment and combination treatment for painful diabetic neuropathy.

BEADS is a pilot and feasibility trial assessing the clinical and cost-effectiveness of behavioural activation therapy for people with post-stroke depression.

Current Projects

  • OPTION-DM (Optimal Pathway for TreatIng neurOpathic paiN in Diabetes Mellitus)
  • BEADS (BEhavioural Activation therapy for Depression after Stroke)
