Principal Investigator

My name is Csaba L. Dégi PhD, MSW. I am assistant professor and researcher at the Babeş-Bolyai University, Faculty of Sociology and Social Work in Cluj Napoca, Romania. I have bachelor and master degrees in social work, and I am a licensed practitioner. Since 2001 I have been working with cancer patients, cancer survivors, medical social workers, palliative care social workers, oncology nurses and hospital pastors from the Central-North-Western region of the country.

My activity was developed in the last decade both in Romania and abroad, starting with the six year research period at the Semmelweis University, Institute of Behavioral Sciences in Budapest, Hungary where I completed my doctoral studies in clinical psychology under the supervision of Professor Dr. Maria Kopp and Dr. Túry Ferenc. Since 2009 I have been working closely with Prof. Dr. Ellen Csikai, editor of the Journal of Social Work in End-Of-Life & Palliative Care.

APSCO team members are trained in protecting human subject research participants.
