More about this project

The Behavioural Medicine Group utilises a variety of complementary research paradigms to examine the psychological and behavioural factors associated with disease processes. That is, what factors predispose individuals to ill-health and increase progression of existing complaints? Furthermore, can the deleterious effects of these factors be reduced through interventions that alter these psychological and behavioural factors?

Current research projects

  • Psychological and behavioural predictors of wound healing in diabetic foot ulcers
  • Intervention studies
  • Psychosocial and behavioural correlates of health and disease
  • Identifying pathways through which stress leads to ill-health
