Professor Dame Lesley Fallowfield DBE, Director of Sussex Health Outcomes Research & Education in Cancer (SHORE-C), and Professor of Psycho-Oncology, will be joining Professor Roger Kirby, RSM President, for a fascinating discussion about her successful career, how her principal research contributions have enabled the measurement of quality of life via clinical treatment trials, how psycho-oncology and improving communication skills of medical professionals can vastly help cancer patients, and her view on the oncology provisions for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Professor Fallowfield's research interests are wide and include the measurement of quality of life in clinical trials of cancer therapy and the training of communication skills for health care professionals in cancer. She has published over 400 papers, many book chapters and 3 textbooks. She lectures and runs training workshops throughout the world in psychosocial oncology, quality of life assessment and communication skills. She is a Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences, an Honorary Fellow of the Association of Cancer Physicians and was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to Psycho-Oncology in 2016.
