The research of Cindy Tofthagen, Ph.D., is focused on management of cancer treatment-related symptoms. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapies and immunotherapies have side effects that create significant physical, emotional and financial burdens for patients and their families. The goal of Dr. Tofthagen's research is to find effective ways to prevent or treat these side effects as well as to help patients better manage side effects at home.
Dr. Tofthagen's background as an oncology nurse guides her research, which focuses on areas of high concern to patients and on symptoms for which there is a limited evidence base to support successful treatment. By focusing on areas in which there are great needs, her research team hopes to offer effective solutions to important clinical problems.
