Lorraine is a Research Fellow interested in the measurement of patient reported outcomes in routine clinical practice, patient and staff engagement with symptom monitoring and patient experience during cancer treatment and cancer survivorship.

Lorraine is currently working on the eRAPID INSIGHTS project, exploring optimal methods of presenting patient reported data and using in-depth analysis methods to explore data from the eRAPID RCT to identify how the intervention works in practice. Prior to this, Lorraine led a service development to establish and evaluate eRAPID with metastatic breast cancer patients on hormone therapies with CDK inhibitors. She also worked on the PROMs work stream of the Macmillan Comprehensive Patient Records (CPR) study, which aims to investigate the impact of a cancer diagnosis and treatment by collecting PROMs data and linking this with data from individual hospital and primary care records.

Lorraine joined the group in 2010 as a research assistant, working on the eRAPID development grant and the subsequent eRAPID RCT in systemic therapy. During this time, she also undertook a part-time PhD exploring the patient perspective of routine symptom monitoring during cancer treatment, and completed this is 2018.
