Dr. Mohamed’s previous research has focused primarily on exploring social, cognitive, and affective factors influencing patients’ coping with and adjustment to cancer diagnosis and treatment. Guided by a self-regulation theoretical framework, the focus of her current research is twofold: the assessment of cognitive and affective factors influencing treatment decision making and the development of applied psychosocial interventions to enhance treatment decision making, quality of life, and post-treatment healthcare among both prostate and bladder cancer patients and their family caregivers. Dr. Mohamed’s research is funded by a Career Development Award from the American Cancer Society (ACS), an Idea Development Award from the Department of Defense (DOD) and the National Cancer Institute.
