3 years at Nottingham and chance to meet Robin Hood!


The University of Nottingham School of Medicine – Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology
 
PhD Studentship
 
Validating the Patient Orientated Eczema Measure (POEM) for inclusion in the core outcome set for eczema trials
Principal supervisor: Professor Kim Thomas
Other supervisors: Dr Sonia Ratib
Applications are invited for a prestigious British Skin Foundation PhD studentship (three-years full-time) within the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology at the University of Nottingham.
The Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology (CEBD)
The CEBD has an international reputation for independent research into the prevention and treatment of skin disease.  It is the editorial base for the Cochrane Skin Group and the co-ordinating centre for the UK Dermatology Clinical Trials Network.   The Centre includes a number of research scientists and PhD students with expertise in systematic reviewing, the design and conduct of clinical trials, disease definition, consensus methodology, patient involvement and outcomes research.  The group attracts around £1 million of grant income per year with a focus on delivering independent clinical research that informs the NHS. For further information visit: www.nottingham.ac.uk/dermatology.
The project
Over 600 randomised controlled trials (RCTs) have been published on treatments for eczema. Several types of treatment are available and they are generally aimed at symptom relief. One of the main limiting factors in pooling data from multiple RCTs and conducting meta-analyses is the variation in outcome measures selected to capture treatment effects, and differences in how and when these outcomes are measured. The Patient Orientated Eczema Measure (POEM) scale is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and was recently selected by the international Harmonizing Outcome Measures for Eczema (HOME) initiative as the preferred instrument for measuring eczema symptoms in the core outcome set for eczema trials. HOME is a global collaborative network of over 200 people (including patients, clinicians, pharmaceutical industry representatives and regulators). For more information about HOME please see: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/homeforeczema/index.aspx
A core outcome set is an essential set of outcomes that are recommended for collection in all future trials for a given condition (http://www.comet-initiative.org/about/overview). By defining a core outcome set, results from different trials can be compared more easily and the quality of trials can be improved. Better quality trials will mean better outcomes for patients.
 
Although the POEM scale is one of the best validated scales for the measurement of eczema symptoms, some areas remain uncertain. The proposed series of linked studies, which make up this PhD, will address these uncertainties.
 
Project objectives
This project will use existing datasets from five UK-funded eczema trials to address known validation gaps:
  1. What is the structural validity of POEM and would inclusion of additional items improve performance of the scale?
  2. Should intensity of symptoms be captured in addition to frequency of symptoms?
  3. Is repeated measurement of POEM a useful way of measuring long-term control?
  4. What is the minimum clinically important difference for POEM in different trial settings and populations?
  5. What is the cross-cultural validity of POEM?
  This project would give the successful applicant the opportunity to learn skills in:
  • Conducting systematic reviews
  • Development of outcome scales for use in clinical research
  • Testing psychometric properties of scales
  • Designing and conducting studies to evaluate psychometric properties (including qualitative and quantitative studies)
  • Statistical techniques
  • Consensus methodology
  • Patient and public involvement
     
    The student will have an opportunity to work alongside international members of the HOME initiative and present findings at both national and international conferences. It is expected that the student will write at least four papers for peer-reviewed journals.
     
    The HOME initiative has a membership of over 200 people, and this network will ensure rapid global dissemination of your findings.
Further Information
Applicants must have at a minimum of a UK 2.1 degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline. It is desirable that they have a MSc in Medical Statistics, Psychology, Epidemiology, Public Health or a related area with very good results, excellent quantitative skills, practical experience of analysing data with a meticulous approach and an interest in eczema. Prior experience of using repeated measures data, multi-level modelling and/or scale development will be advantageous. Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof Kim Thomas (kim.thomas@nottingham.ac.uk).
The studentship will include the payment of tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and a maintenance stipend at current RCUK levels (£14,057 for 2015/16, updated each year). Non-EU students are welcome, but they would have to self-fund the difference between the Home/EU (£3,996) and international fee (£13,470).
The University of Nottingham is the top 1% of global universities and is ranked eighth in the UK on a measure of ‘research power’, with more than 80% of research rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. The University of Nottingham also offers a world-class research training environment for postgraduate students, including an excellent range of support and services.
To apply, students should send a CV, cover letter explaining why they would like the opportunity to study for this PhD, when they are available to start their studies, and details of two referees to Prof Kim Thomas (kim.thomas@nottingham.ac.uk).
Please quote ref: Closing date: Advertised until filled.
