Dr. Feldman-Stewart is a cognitive psychologist and professor in Oncology at Queen's University. She co-directs a research program with Dr. Michael Brundage focused on methods addressing information provision and decision support for cancer patients.  These include: the development of a reliable method for determining patient information needs; a tool to assess the effectiveness of patient information; methods to assist decision support (e.g., values clarification); optimal ways to communicate quantitative information; optimal ways of communicating clinical trials results to patients and clinicians.  The team has a further focus on applications of these research methods, including a program of decision support for patients with early-stage prostate cancer, information provision strategies for patients, standards for clinical trials methodology and reporting of patient-reported outcomes, and others.
