Research Interests

An interest in research developed as a result of collaborating with researchers in her work with childhood cancer survivors. Within POG Beverly has worked on the following studies: ALLINEX looking at the psychosocial supportive care of survivors of allogeneic Haemopoietic Stem Cell Transplant using the internet as a three way information exchange between patients, primary care and secondary/tertiary care. REPORT UK which was a proof of principle study to develop, introduce, and evaluate feasibility and acceptability of a system for patients to self-report adverse events and other patient reported outcomes in cancer trials.

Beverly is currently assisting on eRAPID (Electronic patient self-Reporting of Adverse-events: Patient Information and aDvice) which is an NIHR funded, multi-centred programme in England to evaluate and implement an online system for reporting and managing adverse-events during cancer-treatment of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. ePRIME, a project for the development and implementation of an internet-based system for gynaecological cancer patients to be monitored from home (remotely) after cancer treatment. LILAC looking at quality of life after curative treatment modalities of Video Assisted Thoracoscopic (VATS) recection and Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR)of early stage non-small cell lung cancer.
