Research protocols for a Cervical cancer project

I hired Anna to co-develop operations research protocols for a cervical cancer project in four sub-Saharan African countries. Despite the fact that this subject matter was not yet in Anna’s skill set, she was a very fast learner and was able to absorb all the relevant background information, effectively communicate her thoughts, and produce relevant and comprehensive outputs. She put her strong study design and research ethics knowledge to good use and both protocols that she developed were high-quality, and have withstood several rounds of expert review.

Finally, and importantly, I was also impressed by Anna’s ability to manage multiple stakeholders (in the UK, US, and East Africa, with both technical and non-technical backgrounds) and produce protocols and related documents that fully reflected everyone’s input. I was very pleased with Anna’s work, and hope to work with her again in the future.
