Reducing Cancer Symptoms & Improving Caregiver Well-Being
Our group focuses on research that links cancer control with behavioral science. We work to understand and reduce cancer morbidity and use that understanding to develop treatments for related physical and psychosocial symptoms. Our intent is to improve patient-reported outcomes (PROs).
We design and develop technology-enabled interventions to improve quality of life for patients and caregivers. We have created and tested remote monitoring and care management platforms such as Symptom Care at Home that have demonstrated exceptional reductions in patient symptoms and improvements in family caregiver well-being. With this automated system, we can monitor and improve care to cancer patients and their families at home, including those living in remote rural or frontier communities.
