Christina Baggott, PhD (Nursing Research)

BaggottDr. Christina Baggott’s research is focused on evaluating the symptom experience of children receiving treatment for cancer. Aspects of this program of research include the assessment of changes in symptom occurrence, severity, and distress across the child’s treatment trajectory, potential genetic influences on symptom severity, the impact of symptoms on patient outcomes (e.g., functional status, quality of life), and parents’ perceptions of children’s symptoms. An additional focus of her research is the use of technology to develop and evaluate tools on mobile platforms to assess and manage cancer-related symptoms (mHealth).
