Christina Baggott currently works as a Clinical Research Nurse Practitioner at Stanford University in the Pediatric Cancer Cell Therapy Program. Dr. Baggott has been a pediatric oncology nurse for more than 30 years. She received her BSN degree at the University of Alabama in 1986 followed by a Master of Nursing from Emory University in 1990 and a PhD from the University of California San Francisco in 2009.
Most of her career was spent at Stanford as a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner. Her program of research is focused on evaluating the symptom experience of children receiving treatment for cancer. Aspects of this program of research include changes in symptom occurrence, severity, and distress across children’s treatment trajectories, the impact of symptoms on patients’ 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).
