Research interests & goals:
Dr. Docherty’s research is focused on improving the quality of life and long-term outcomes of infants, children, and adolescents, who are undergoing treatment for life-threatening and chronic illnesses. Her studies of how life-sustaining treatment impacts the short- and long-term functioning of acute and chronically ill children and their families, is based on a developmental systems approach and thus she utilizes longitudinal and mixed method research methodologies.
