Position Title: Deputy Program Leader, Behavioural Sciences Unit, Kids Cancer Centre, Sydney Children's Hospital. Lecturer, School of Women's and Children's Health, UNSW Medicine, University of NSW.
Job Responsibilities: Research
About Me/My interests: I am passionate about helping children and families affected by pediatric cancer, both during treatment and throughout the survivorship phases of their journey. My research interests include assessing the unmet needs of these families and developing effective interventions and models of care to best support these amazing people. Recently, I have been involved in extensive qualitative work which has helped to lay the foundations of what Australian families are challenged by as they transition from treatment to long term survivorship status.
In addition, I also have a strong research interest in melanoma survivors, particularly those at high risk of developing a new primary melanoma.
