Dr Stuart Lee

 
Having completed a Doctorate in Clinical Neuropsychology with Monash University and worked at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre since 2006, I am interested in the cognitive and other psychological consequences of psychiatric, neurological and oncology disorders and novel ways to treat them. All too often treatment for these disorders focuses on the medical options, with the psychological distress or thinking and memory difficulties that have a profound effect on quality of life often missed.

As a clinical research centre, working at MAP-RC has enabled me to work closely with staff in the Adult Psychiatry and Oncology Services of The Alfred hospital. This has provided the opportunity to complete a range of projects looking to improve the way care is delivered in these services. These include implementing routine distress screening on the inpatient oncology ward, evaluating the impact of an interagency initiative to improve mental health care for people living homeless, introducing sensory assessment and therapy to reduce seclusion use in inpatient psychiatry, and the benefit of creative therapies in acute psychiatry.
