Alison is a Senior Research Officer with the Centre for Health Research & Psycho-oncology (CHeRP, the behavioural research unit of the Cancer Council NSW). She has been involved in behavioural research in relation to cancer since 2002. Alison assists in the co-ordination and implementation of research projects and the writing of scientific reports and papers.
Alison is currently working on several research projects in the area of cancer survivorship. The key project is the Cancer Survival Study, a longitudinal study following over 1400 cancer survivors until 5 years post-diagnosis. The Cancer Survival Study explores the well-being of cancer survivors across a variety of outcomes including physical and emotional health, positive growth, work-related and employment issues, lifestyle issues, relationships and social support and coping styles. Alison is interested in the moderators of well-being, including coping styles, and in 2008 completed her Research Masters degree exploring coping in two samples of cancer patients who are 6 months and 5 years post-diagnosis.
