Information Specialist and Assistant Managing Editor
As the Information Specialist, I provide advice and support to systematic review authors on all aspects of search methodology. I prepare the search section in review protocols, including designing and testing search strategies, and conducting the searches for all new reviews and review updates. In addition, I am responsible for maintaining and regularly updating a Specialised Register of clinical trials relating to ear, nose and throat disorders and head and neck cancers. These are managed within a specialist information management tool and published in the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) on The Cochrane Library.
As Assistant Managing Editor, I support the Managing Editor Jenny Bellorini in coordinating the activities of the Cochrane ENT Group. I also maintains in-house information resources and help obtain medical articles and trial reports. I manage the groups budgets and financial reporting, and act as project manager when necessary.
