Mooney Group

Our group focuses our research in the areas of cancer control and behavioral science. Key to our efforts is to understand and reduce morbidity from cancer and treatment related physical and psychosocial symptoms with an intent to improve patient reported outcomes (PROs). We design IT enabled interventions to improve quality of life through development and testing of remote monitoring and care management systems designed to reduce cancer patient symptoms and improve family caregiver well-being. Within this focus we propose and test strategies to improve oncology provider and cancer patient/family caregiver communication about physical and psychosocial symptoms, quality of life, and goals of care throughout the cancer continuum. The Mooney group is very collaborative and conducts their research with a number of other research groups.
