Presenter: Mrs. C. Foster
Prof Claire Foster obtained her PhD from the University of Exeter, UK. She then spent seven years at the Institute of Cancer Research, UK, before moving to University of Southampton, UK, in 2004. She is Professor of Psychosocial Oncology in the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southampton, UK. She is Director of the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group and her research programme focuses on advancing understanding of the health outcomes and experiences of cancer survivors and developing supportive resources to enhance well-being and self-management following treatment. This includes large prospective cohort studies to understand the consequences of cancer over time, how this can impact on people’s daily lives, and identifying areas for intervention. Her team is developing complex interventions, including web-based resources, to support self-management of cancer related problems such as fatigue following cancer treatment; and developing web-based decision aids to support younger women facing decisions about treatment and genetic testing.
