Amy Price PhD is a director of the ThinkWell charity, where she leads the PLOT-IT (Public Led Online Trials-Infrastructure and Tools) project. Her institutional affiliation is the University of Oxford. Her goal is build clear channels to propel evidence into practice by supplying the public, and those in low resource areas, with tools to make evidence based healthcare choices. Responsible shared decision making requires access to standardised and accurate shared knowledge.
She and her team plan to engage, train, and empower the public to plan, prioritise, and take part in all aspects of research including the formation of online randomised controlled trials prioritised by the public and supported through expert methodological input. Her background in international relief work, clinical neurocognitive rehabilitation, service on the boards of multiple patient organisations, and as a trauma survivor has equipped her with the flexible mindset to relate to all stakeholders and cultures. Amy’s experience has shown her that shared knowledge, interdisciplinary collaboration, and evidence based research will shape and develop the future.
