Cheryl Mason

I am a PhD student at the Centre for Psychiatry, a World Psychiatric Association Collaborating Centre.

I am currently working on a mixed-methods project titled “Psychosocial Factors associated with Impact of Cancer and Quality of Life in Head and Neck Cancer Survivors” funded by the medical research charity Saving Faces – The Facial Surgery Research Foundation.

Under the supervision of Professor Ania Korszun and Professor Kam Bhui, I am investigating the influence of psychological and social factors, including psychological distress, social support and relationship satisfaction, on the Quality of Life of head and neck cancer survivors and their caregivers. The project also explores factors influencing the development of positive and negative adaptation to living with cancer and how non-distress related variables may impact on patients’ quality of life and well-being. The ultimate aim of my PhD research is to develop a psychological support website for head and neck cancer patients and their caregivers.

Previously I worked as a Research Assistant on a randomised controlled trial funded by Cancer Research UK comparing two surgical treatments for early mouth cancer in terms of survival and quality of life. Prior to this, I completed my Master’s degree in Development and Psychopathology at the University of Reading where I also worked as a Research Assistant in a range of projects studying decision-making mechanisms.
