Dr. Temel will examine the barriers that clinicians have in talking about this difficult issue and will focus on methods to help clinicians begin such dialogues with their patients.

  • Eileen Shinn, M.D., Ph.D., MD Anderson Cancer Center, will test a theory-based intervention to increase adherence to rehabilitative exercises among patients with neck and head cancer. Patients who do not perform these exercises are likely to have permanent problems with eating and swallowing, which can affect quality of life.
