Biobehavioral Factors in Clinical Care and Survivorship
A better understanding of biobehavioral factors in the clinical care of cancer patients and during survivorship continues to be a priority of the BOP, with the long term goal of developing interventions that can be used in clinical practice to enhance patients' treatment experiences and outcomes.
Biobehavioral Analysis of Cancer Risk Behaviors
Cigarette smoking continues to be the most preventable cause of cancer world-wide. Therefore, biobehavioral investigations of smoking behavior continue to be a major focus of research in the Program. BOP investigators are engaged in transdisciplinary research necessary to provide the evidence base for effective national-level policy changes and individual-level interventions to reduce exposure to tobacco carcinogens at all three phases of the smoking continuum: initiation, maintenance, and cessation.
