Research on Decision-Making in Oncology
My major current interest is in research relevant to cancer control, with a particular emphasis on research related to decision making behaviour, communication, and quality of life. For example, I'm particularly interested in exploring contributions that the Internet can make to research in these areas. Anyone with Internet access can now tap into health-related information that was, in the past, only accessible to health professionals, or to unusually well-educated people with substantial time and resources. Research is needed on Internet information sources, their quality, and their impact, from oncological, epidemiological, behavioural and ethical perspectives. As a Professor Emeritus, I continue to be involved in research and teaching, but I no longer support a research group, nor serve as a thesis advisor for students.
