Our lab examines factors that influence treatment adherence, develops interventions to improve adherence and quantifies the impact of treatment adherence on medical and psychological outcomes. We focus specifically on pediatric solid organ transplant, hematopoietic stem cell transplant and oncology populations. We are interested in the ways that families and medical teams support adherence in pediatric patients, and how children and adolescents learn to effectively manage their own treatment regimens as they progress to adulthood.
