Short presentation

My research focuses on pediatric psychology, especially children and familes affected by cancer.The overarching aim of my research is to increase our knowledge of psychological, behavioural and social consequences of severe illness such as cancer and to identify the care needs of patients, their families and significant others. The goal is to use this knowledge to further develop psychosocial care and support measures for patients and families.
