My cancer research goals are to reduce the burden of cancer through health services and implementation research. I am interested in the quality of cancer care, defined in terms of both underutilization and overutilization, and underserved populations. I also have research interests in patient-provider communication, risk perception, patient-centered care, and applied medical informatics. I have studied questions across the continuum of cancer care, from cancer screening to treatment to survivorship. I have focused on highly prevalent cancers, including breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer. A specific and active area of interest is surveillance testing among colorectal cancer survivors and the application of personal health records.
