Emily C. Freeman PhD

Edith Kitchmann Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care, Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto, Ontario

Dr. Emily Freeman’s research focus within the area of psychosocial oncology is concerned with post-traumatic growth and advanced disease. She conducts qualitative investigations examining the experience of patients with the health care system after a diagnosis of advanced cancer. Dr. Freeman is also interested in the knowledge transfer and dissemination of evidence from science to evidence-based medicine for patients with chronic diseases and cancer.  She is exploring what counts as medical evidence within the evidence-based medicine paradigm and how this intersects with patient’s values and treatment decisions.
