    Research Interests

    My research is focused on enhancing the psychological well-being / quality of life of people with chronic illness (cancer, diabetes and heart disease) and their families. More specifically:

    • Modelling the psychological predictors of psychological well-being and quality of life via reviews of current literature and primary research
    • Designing and evaluating interventions to enhance quality of life and modify illness and sick-role behaviours.
    • Developing and testing instruments to measure psychological constructs of importance in this area, eg. health-related quality of life.

    I also have an interest in research methodology and how research is conducted in applied health settings. See Dempster, M. (2011). A Research Guide for Health and Clinical Psychology. Palgrave Macmillan
