Research Abstract

My research interests are in the areas of health psychology and mental health outcomes of oncology patients. I am interested in the assessment for quality-of-life, psychiatric morbidity, and medical decision making in adolescents and young adults. My current projects include an evaluation of a mental health screening program for a long-term survivor clinic, a study of depression and suicidality in adult survivors of childhood cancer, a study of parents' use of complementary therapies for child patients, and an investigation of response bias in self-reported quality-of-life in children and parents following bone marrow transplant.
