My research revolves around two main focus areas: on social disparities in cancer outcomes and on physical, psychological and social late effects after cancer treatment. I have been working in psycho-oncology for 25 years and heads a research group in the Danish Cancer Institute on survivorship and inequality in cancer. I also head the Danish Research Center for Equality in Cancer, based in Department of Oncology, Zealand University Hospital. Here I work with colleagues across research disciplines to identify high-risk groups of patients and develop and test clinical solutions that may ensure optimal treatment to all cancer patients – no matter who they are. I have been a member of IPOS for many years, led a 2-day workshop on research methodologies for several years at the IPOS Psychosocial Academy and received the Bernard Fox Memorial Price in 2008. I function as an associate editor for the Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research and Practice. I have participated in many IPOS conferences – always enjoying the sense of community and opportunity to share and develop research ideas for the benefit of the patients.
