Jo contributes to and leads the production of Technology Assessment Reports for NICE, primarily single technology appraisals (STAs) but also multiple technology appraisals (MTAs) and diagnostic technology appraisals (DARs).  In addition, she has contributed to evidence syntheses funded by the NIHR HTA Programme.  During 2020-2022 Jo led the production of a systematic scoping review as part of a work package for the EU funded FAIR project.  Jo has also led the production of a systematic overview of systematic reviews to help inform the development of a pre-operative intervention to improve glycaemic control in people with diabetes scheduled to undergo cardiac surgery (the OCTOPuS trial).   Jo is a regular contributor to SHTAC’s external training programme on systematic reviews where she has led sessions on inclusion/exclusion screening and data synthesis.
