Behavioural Health Research Group

Welcome to the Behavioural Health Research Group. Our research in behavioural health includes investigations into scleroderma and cardiovascular disease, as well as general evidence review. More specifically, members of our team are interested in factors influencing the quality of life of patients with scleroderma, such as sexuality and body image distress, pain, pruritus (itching), depression, suicidal ideation and fatigue. Our group is also involved in evidence evaluation, such as screening for depression in cardiovascular care. If you would like more information please contact:
