Follow the research trajectory of Dr. Carol Estwing Ferrans over the past 30 years. You’ll discover how she used research findings as a tool to strategically shape and create changes in healthcare policy and legislation. Her work includes advocating for the voice of the patient in quality of life (QOL) assessment, developing a conceptual framework for QOL and an instrument to capture the patient’s viewpoint, and understanding and reducing disparities in cancer.
