Pamela Gallagher, PhD, C. Psychol., Ps.S.I.  is a Full Professor of Psychology and founding Head of the new School of Psychology, Dublin City University.  Here she leads the research priority ‘Living Well with Illness, Disability and Technology’.

She is also a PI in the DCU Cancer Research Group. Her research, which she has published widely, focuses on enhancing our understanding of the psychological, behavioural and social responses to, and influences on, cancer; and improving the lives of those affected by or living with, through and beyond cancer.



Title:  The person, cancer survivorship and personally meaningful outcomes.

Summary:  There are increasing numbers of people surviving cancer and many living with long-term consequences and challenges. Improving our understanding of and supporting cancer survivors to achieve optimal physical, psychological and social outcomes is a priority.

To maximise the impact of these endeavours, a careful consideration of what are personally meaningful outcomes for people affected by cancer and how we can meaningfully assess them to improve the lives of those affected by cancer is required.

This talk will consider these challenges and in doing so will draw on recent research illustrating the psychological, social, cognitive, and environmental factors and impact involved in managing and living with and beyond cancer and its consequences.
