I have been working in psycho-oncology and cancer survivorship research at Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer since 2013, first as Study Coordinator for the Finding My Way clinical trial, which examined adherence to and efficacy of an online intervention for cancer-related distress, and then as Study Coordinator for the Finding My Way - Advanced studies which focused on how a similar online intervention could be developed for individuals with Advanced Breast Cancer. In my continued role as Research Associate in Psycho-oncology and Survivorship I have been fortunate to be involved in additional studies examining various aspects of cancer survivorship, including supportive care needs of breast cancer survivors and caregivers, remaining at/returning to work for cancer survivors, and the role of eHealth applications in cancer care. In my role as Postdoctoral Fellow I work as part of a team developing and testing the feasibility and usability of the Finding My Way - Advanced online intervention for women living with advanced breast cancer.
