Description of Research Expertise:
My research encompasses three fundamental areas of interest related to health outcomes in patients with advanced cancer:
1. using radiotherapy to improve symptoms, quality of life and overall functioning in patients with advanced and metastatic cancer; and
2. optimizing symptom management in patients with advanced and metastatic cancer receiving radiotherapy.
3. enhancing communication between providers and patients/families living with advanced and metastatic cancer.
