A resident of Barcelona for the past 15 years, Anne-Sophie has worked on several international multi-centric research projects related to Education and Health.
She is currently working at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health as Public and Patient Involvement in Health Research Manager, promoting the active participation of patients, caregivers and citizens into all the phases of research projects. In this context, she has coordinated together with Dra. María Jesús Pinazo, the InSPIRES project (embedded under the Responsible Research and Innovation initiative of the Innovation department, and developed in collaboration with International Health clinical department of Hospital Clinic) whose main purpose was to bring science and society closer together in order to co-create research agendas that directly respond to citizen’s needs and concerns, providing evidence and giving support to political bodies and decision-makers for the creation of better public policies. She was also actively involved in the CRISH, InnovDoctor, CALMA, and CoUp Lab projects, developed and implemented in collaboration between ISGlobal and the Hospital Clinic Barcelona.
She is also a member of the Patient Experience Observatory of the Hospital Clinic Barcelona, a platform that promotes the evaluation and incorporation of Patient Experience into the strategy and daily clinical practice. Acting transversally within the Hospital, the Observatory promotes active participation and co creation together with patients and caregivers in order to redesign healthcare according to their unmet needs. The Observatory also promotes the dissemination and application of good practices obtained in the Hospital, to innovate and improve the provision of health services, in an open and collaborative manner.
