Overview

Susan trained as a Registered Nurse, later specialising in intensive care nursing.  Her research activities have involved evidence synthesis in a wide range of health-related topics.  Susan’s current research interests focus on systematic review and meta-analysis in chronic wounds, including methods such as individual patient data meta-analysis and mixed treatment comparison (network) meta-analysis.  She co-ordinated and performed the first collaborative individual patient data meta-analysis in the treatment of venous leg ulceration; this has been used to underpin recommendations in national clinical guidelines.  Susan also contributed to the first rigorously conducted mixed treatment comparison meta-analysis in chronic wounds (dressings for diabetic foot ulcers).
