Clinical Trials Manager
SuMMiT-D, PACE Oxford
PACE is a randomised controlled trial that aims to evaluate whether using a CRP point of care test (POCT) results in better targeting of antibiotic treatment than usual care informed by NICE and GOLD guidelines. The primary outcomes are the overall consumption of antibiotics for COPD and patient-rated clinical recovery from their acute exacerbations, with the aim being to reduce overall antibiotic use without compromising patient recovery.
The sponsor is the University of Cardiff. The Oxford University Primary Care Clinical Trials Unit is a coordinating center.
SuMMiT-D is a six-year NIHR funded programme to develop a digital-health messaging tool to support people with type 2 diabetes in best use of medicines and to test it as part of a wider system of support in clinical trials.
