Dr. Jones' research program has focused primarily on the quality of life and psychosocial issues of individuals and families facing cancer. Her most recent scholarly and professional activities have clustered around the following platforms:
- Translational research to inform clinical survivorship careThis platform specifically focuses on examining new approaches to predict, prevent and manage long-term adverse effects of cancer and its treatment and evaluating innovative models of follow-up care and support. This includes: i) Assessment of the prevalence and impact of long-term and late physical and psychosocial effects of cancer and its treatment; ii) Development and evaluation of sustainable and cost-effective psychosocial and self-management interventions for patients and their families and innovative models of care; 3) Integration of evidence into daily clinical practice through the development of integrated KT models and education.
- Fostering innovative health professional and continuing education that is designed to transform the patient experienceThis area of research has included the development and formal evaluation of multidisciplinary training programs in psychosocial oncology and palliative care, patient education, and cancer survivorship care.
