Rosemary joined the group as part of the eRAPID team. Subsequently she led development of the eRAPID at Leeds Cancer Centre.  She has worked on our international studies including SISAQOL-IMI developing recommendations for communication of patient reported outcomes from controlled clinical trials and is currently developing guidelines using consensus methods for the EORTC Item Library project.

Rosemary has a background in health services research, and a particular interest in patient experience and patient involvement in research. She was awarded a doctoral scholarship by the University of Bradford, and investigated how personal communities provide support and a sense of belonging to people living with visible facial differences.
