Summary

Sarah qualified as an information professional with a post-graduate diploma then MSc from Leeds Metropolitan University and started her career in health information supporting the information skills component in the pre-registration nursing curriculum at City University. In 2000 She moved to the British Medical Journal’s Evidence Centre as an information specialist, working on resources such as BMJ Clinical Evidence, BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning where she collaborated with external authors, editors and clinicians to develop reviews. Her role involved developing, validating and performing complex search strategies for specific study designs for multiple medical conditions and interventions, critically appraising search results, reference management, data checking, extraction and quality control. In addition, her role in the information specialist team at the BMJ meant continually reviewing and developing the search processes and presenting the results of research at national and international conferences and workshops. In 2012 Sarah joined the team at InferMed Ltd (later part of Elsevier Clinical Solutions), a clinical decision support software company, working as a content transformation specialist in a multidisciplinary team to analyse clinical guidelines and content and transform these into computer interpretable guidelines for use in GP and hospital systems and national telephone triage systems.
