Personal profile


Sarah is the Senior Trial Manager on the iHOLDS trial which is a large (target N= 2400) randomised double-blinded, multi-centre study looking at standard dose vs a higher dose of oxytocin on the rate of caesarean section in induction of labour.  The Trial is being run at Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit (BCTU).  You can find out more about the trial here

Prior to this Sarah was the Senior Trial Manager for the Colour-COPD trial, a 2-arm, multi-centre, randomised controlled trial (RCT) investigating the use of a sputum colour chart to guide antibiotic self-treatment when patients experience acute exacerbation of COPD.

Before taking up posts in BCTU, Sarah worked in the School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences on two RCTs: Community-based Prevention of Diabetes (Com-PoD) study and the Retirement in Action (REACT) Study. Com-PoD assessed the effectiveness of a community-based diabetes prevention programme, and REACT assessed the effectiveness of a physical activity and social programme on improving the physical function of older adults.

From 2009-2014 Sarah worked in the Department of Primary Care Clinical Sciences at the University of Birmingham where she delivered the exercise intervention in two RCT's: 1) investigating the effectiveness of exercise on postnatal depression (The PAM-PeRS study) and 2) vasomotor menopausal symptoms (The Active Women study). She also worked on numerous weight management RCTs including Weigh 2 Go (the efficacy of drinking water prior to main meals to aid weight loss); Scale Down (the effectiveness of daily self-weighing on weight loss) and Limit study (weight loss maintenance).
