Dr. Lorraine Warrington


I’m a Research Fellow currently based in the Patient Centred Outcomes Research (PCOR) group, in Bexley Wing at St James University Hospital.

I am currently working on a project (eRAPID INSIGHTS) exploring optimal methods of presenting patient reported data and using in-depth analysis methods to explore data from a previous RCT evaluating the eRAPID intervention to explore how it works in practice. Prior to this, I led a service development to establish and evaluate eRAPID with metastatic breast cancer patients on hormone therapies with CDK inhibitors. I 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.

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

Research interests

I am 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.
