You will be involved in studies focused on the selection, development, and psychometric validation, of patient-reported outcomes and other clinical outcome assessments (COAs). You will be involved in a range of research activities including conducting literature reviews, developing study protocols (both qualitative and quantitative), developing statistical analyses plans, preparing study documentation for ethical review (both UK and international), recruitment of study participants, interviewing of participants, data analysis, the reporting of study findings, and writing conference abstracts/posters and journal manuscripts.
