Dr. Fiona Schulte

Fiona’s research examines the psychosocial outcomes in children who have been diagnosed with cancer. More specifically, some work has been focused on developing an understanding of how survivors of childhood cancer perceive their social competence, and how one might accurately and reliably assess social competence in this population. This knowledge is critical to understanding social development in pediatric oncology survivors. Ultimately, Fiona is interested in investigating the mechanisms that lead to social competence deficits in this population, whether such deficits can be rehabilitated through psychosocial interventions, and if these interventions positively affect long-term survivorship.
