Prof. Claire Wakefield leads Australia’s largest Paediatric Psycho-Oncology Research Group, based in UNSW Medicine. Her research program aims to develop interventions to ameliorate long-term physical, social and mental health conditions in families affected by cancer. Her research covers psychosocial and behavioural domains, from the diagnosis of cancer in a child, through to their survivorship, or their family’s bereavement. Under her leadership, the Behavioural Sciences Unit (BSU) has expanded from 1 person in 2009 to more than 35 staff/students in 2020.
