Researchers: A/Pr Claire Wakefield (Principal investigator)

Brief description My program aims to improve mental health and quality of life in families affected by paediatric cancer. The program covers three themes: 1) Trial of novel behavioural medicine interventions to prevent poor mental and physical health outcomes; 2) Discovery of the psychosocial impact of genetic technologies for young people affected by cancer; and 3) Evaluation of the impact of paediatric cancer on under-researched, but critical, facets of family life. My work spans the full cancer trajectory, from diagnosis to survivorship or bereavement.
