Sarah's work as a Knowledge Broker at Cochrane UK focuses on disseminating Cochrane evidence through social media, including Evidently Cochrane blogs and blogshots, with a particular interest in making evidence quick and easy for patients and others making health choices, and healthcare professionals, to understand and use. Sarah has hearing loss and is awaiting a cochlear implant. In June 2021, she took on the role of Patient Ambassador for the COACH trial, a randomised trial to compare cochlear implants and hearing aids for people who hear slightly more than the current eligibility threshold for a cochlear implant. Before joining Cochrane she worked on systematic reviews for the University of Oxford and the Royal College of Nursing Institute, and obtained degrees in Modern History from the University of Oxford and in the history of women’s health and illness in early modern England (MPhil., University of Reading). She is also a former Registered General Nurse.
