Dr. Carter-Harris's research interests include:

I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at Indiana University . I am strongly committed to pursuing a research career in behavioral oncology focused on understanding the impact of individual health beliefs and stigma on lung cancer screening in individuals at high risk for the development of this deadly disease. I developed a conceptual model to understand lung cancer screening participation in high-risk smokers as well as developed instruments to measure individual health beliefs about lung cancer screening (Lung Cancer Screening Health Beliefs Scales). I have recently completed recruitment for a lung health survey study and am currently psychometrically testing the Lung Cancer Screening Health Beliefs Scales. Overall, my program of research is focused on understanding factors that influence lung cancer screening participation among those at risk for the disease with a long-term goal of developing and testing interventions to enhance the shared decision-making process about lung cancer screening between high-risk individuals and their healthcare provider. I am also particularly interested in the influence of stigma on health behaviors (such as participating in lung cancer screening). My future interests include continuing to expand my behavioral oncology program of research focused on important questions that have the potential to decrease morbidity and mortality related to lung cancer. Examples of my interests include: examining provider attitudes, knowledge, and beliefs about lung cancer screening; examining smoking-related stigma retrospectively to determine if the patient diagnostic and treatment course differs by race/ethnicity and by smoking status to inform research that would target an intervention to address this potential disparity; and smoking cessation interventions in the context of lung cancer screening.
