Meet Maud

 

What first attracted you to working in clinical trials, specifically patient engagement?

I am drawn to learning new things and challenging myself. As a recent graduate in a very different field, clinical trials were completely novel to me. My initial attraction to the health and clinical trial sector was the thought of making a difference and helping to improve other people’s lives.

Why is clinical research important and why does it matter to you?

Clinical trials are an important piece of the puzzle for furthering research. It is important to me the feeling of reward you get when a trial helps a patient with a potentially debilitating condition and also knowing that just one successful trial can impact many more patients in a positive way.

What was it about SPCR that made you want to work there?

It was the close-knit team spirit that I felt even in the interview that really drew me to SPCR.

What will your role involve at St Pancras Clinical Research?

The role involves the data entry and process of onboarding potential patients onto SPCR’s clinical trials. There will also be patient engagement duties in the realms of advertising campaigns and social media outreach.

What skills do you hope to gain at St Pancras Clinical Research?

I hope to gain and strengthen skills surrounding administration, effective patient-centred communication, and more specific skills and knowledge in line with the medical industry.

What is the best bit of job advice you have been given?

It is your attitude and outlook that will change your perception and achievement of success.

 

Why is clinical research important and why does it matter to you? 

Clinical Research is one of the most important areas of improving healthcare provision in both a local and global sense. Being able to be a part of this industry provides means that I am making a difference to peoples’ lives and this matters a lot to me.

What was it about SPCR that made you want to work there? 

SPCR is a leading research centre with a world-class team that is involved in studies across multiple disorders. The knowledge and skills learnt in this environment are invaluable and is the main reason why I wanted to work at SPCR.

What will your role involve at St Pancras Clinical Research? 

My role at St Pancras Clinical Research involves engaging with both new and old patients to join current studies being conducted at the site. This requires creating a rapport with all potential candidates to discern whether they meet the criteria to be a part of any research study.

What skills do you hope to gain at St Pancras Clinical Research?

I hope to further develop my verbal engagement, teamwork, analytical and general administrative skills.

What is the best bit of job advice you have been given? 

The best bit of job advice that I have been given is to take your time to learn everything because knowledge and proficiency comes with practice, confidence.
