Supportive Care

The main areas of research for the Supportive Care Program are Psychosocial Oncology, Palliative Care, and Cancer Survivorship and Rehabilitation. These areas overlap and include biopsychosocial, as well as neurocognitive effects of cancer and its treatment on patients and their families across the disease trajectory. These areas are investigated through longitudinal, intervention and implementation research to reduce suffering, optimize functioning and health, and improve quality of life throughout the course of illness.
