The Behavioural Medicine Laboratory is located at the University of Calgary under the direction of Dr. Tavis Campbell. Our laboratory focuses on developing a better understanding of the bio-behavioral mechanisms involved in the development and progression of chronic illnesses including cardiovascular disease and cancer. We are also involved in the design and evaluation of behavioral interventions aimed at improving outcomes among patients suffering from chronic illnesses.  Topics of study include: adherence, cardiac rehabilitation, cardiovascular reactivity, mindfulness-based stress reduction, motivating healthy lifestyle behaviors, pain. We use methods such as ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, impedance cardiography, actigraphy, and assessment of heart rate variability and stress hormones.
