Follow Dr. Rodin:
Our research group is currently focused on the psychosocial problems of individuals and families facing advanced and terminal cancer.

We are conducting clinical trials of novel psychotherapeutic interventions that we have developed for patients with acute leukemia and metastatic and advanced cancer.  

We are also studying the quality of dying and death in diverse locations.  These studies are conducted locally and with international collaborators.

We are employing both qualitative and quantitative approaches to evaluate the experience of illness and to identify potential targets for therapeutic intervention. We are also developing new methods to assess quality of life, pain and psychological disturbances in individuals with advanced and terminal disease and the impact of these conditions on spouses and children.
