Improving Outcomes For Children & Young Adults With Cancer

The Wu Group has a shared goal of improving the following outcomes for children, adolescents, young adults who have been affected by cancer or who are at-risk for cancer, as well as for their families:

  • cancer-related survival,
  • maintenance of cancer remission,
  • prevention of cancer,
  • quality of life, and
  • psychological outcomes.

Our work focuses on improving these outcomes by designing and testing ways to improve people’s adherence to medical recommendations and regimens (that is, whether what they do is consistent with their medical provider’s advice) and self-management of their health.
