The Mass General Cancer Center Survivorship Program is engaged in research to help better understand the health issues that impact patients after a cancer diagnosis, improve screening for these problems, and develop better treatments.
Our research studies, funded by the National Institute of Health, the American Cancer Society, and other foundations, assess survivors’ ongoing challenges and are focused on identifying and implementing evidence-based treatments for adults and young adults. Specifically, we are examining common and unique challenges, including health behaviors (e.g., sleep, tobacco use), physical symptoms (fatigue, pain), employment and financial issues, and emotional distress (fear of recurrence, stress) associated with survivorship. Proposed work we are hoping to launch will examine health insurance and medical care access, addressing caregiver/partners psychosocial needs, and healthy eating.
