HSRU student interns present their work to the unit

At two recent lunchtime seminars we heard from eight intern students, who have been working in HSRU over the summer. We were delighted to welcome some of HSRUs Public Partnership Group to one of these sessions.

Three of the interns have been working within the programming team. Valerio Bucci and Julia Zięba we heard about their joint work to develop a web portal for trial participants complete electronic patient reported outcomes(ePRO). Hilaron Osemudiame Dawodu described the two projects he has been working on – firstly the development of a study website for the ESP-2 study, and secondly about the development of a feedback tool that can create snapshots of website pages and send them via email.

Alex Zabala-Findlay presented his work about developing plain language summaries for diagnostic test accuracy studies. This was complimented by Gemma Banister who described her work in developing guidelines for reporting the results of diagnostic accuracy studies to participants. Gemma has been thinking particularly about the EDNA study whose participants have some degree of sight loss.

Sam Alexander described one of the two projects he has been working on. Sam has been looking at recruitment profiles, by site, across a sample of randomised controlled trials to identify any common factors associated with good recruitment. From Agata Kostrzewa, we heard about her work looking at the media coverage of Baby Boxes within Scotland. Stefania Pirosca described her project which has been identifying and theming trial design improvements suggested by Cochrane systematic reviews.
