A major goal of the division of Behavioral & Psychosocial Oncology is to promote inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional research in cancer prevention, cancer control, population science and survivorship to lessen the cancer burden in central and southern Illinois regions and the beyond.

 

Program Scientific Goals:

  • Reduce the cancer incidence, cancer-related morbidity, and mortality in men and women across the age spectrum by developing and testing strategies for the management of psychosocial and physical symptoms associated with cancer.

  • Design and test psychosocial interventions using conventional, complementary, and alternative approaches.

  • Advance the understanding of the psychosocial, spiritual, and physical dimensions of quality of life.

  • Increase understanding of cancer risk behaviors, improving methods to promote cancer-preventive behavioral change and improving screening behavior.

  • Enhance knowledge of cognitive and other functional difficulties that appear to remain following treatment for cancer, and to identify opportunities for educational, behavioral and pharmacologic intervention to alter abnormal patterns of brain functioning.

 

Research Studies:

  • Protocol 09139: Residual Neuropsychological Deficits in Adults Post-Chemotherapeutic Treatment. The intention of this study is to investigate the type of cognitive and other functional difficulties that appear to remain following treatment for cancer.

  • Protocol 09140: Alterations in Neuropsychological Functioning in Adults Receiving Chemotherapy for Systemic and/or Adjuvant Disease Treatment. The purpose is to investigate the type of cognitive and other functional difficulties that appear during treatment for cancer.

  • Protocol 08141: Effect of Distress Screening and Reminder Checklist on Patient Satisfaction with Cancer. The goal of this study is to increase and improve strategies to alleviate stressors and problems associated with cancer.

  • Protocol 11085:  The Effect of a Mindfulness Stress Management Seminar on Emotional and Physical Wellbeing: A Pilot Study. The aim of this study is to assess the effects of participation in a mindfulness meditation–based stress reduction program on mood disturbance, symptoms of stress, and physical wellbeing symptoms in cancer outpatients.
