The work of this group focuses on patients' psychological and behavioural responses to the detection and treatment of disease. Our work in this area includes, but is not limited to:
- The psychological and behavioural consequences of early disease detection (e.g. Cancer).
- Optimising the effectiveness of treatments through behavioural adjuvants
- Enhancing patient engagement (e.g. in trials) and adherence with treatment.
What we are doing about these
Evaluating the emotional and behavioural consequences of early cancer detection (with Denise Kendrick).
Exploring psychological predictors of engagement with treatment and treatment outcomes (current projects in prostate cancer, stroke, kidney disease and in vitro fertilisation).
Examining the effects of bio-behavioural interventions on disease and treatment outcomes (current projects in prostate cancer, diabetes and preventative vaccines)
