Assistant Professor

Michelle Fortier received her PhD in Clinical Child Psychology in 2006 from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Dr. Fortier’s research interests include pediatric pain, pediatric oncology, healthcare disparities, and mHealth. She is a clinical psychologist who specializes in pain management in children, and whose program of research incorporates health information technology to improve the management of pain and symptoms in children.

UC Irvine Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing Associate Professor Michelle Fortier has secured a grant opportunity in collaboration with UCI Public Health, Michael Hoyt, from the Anti-Cancer Challenge 2019-2020. This $40,000 grant, “Goal Directed Intervention for Adolescent Cancer Survivors,” is designed to conduct individual and focus group interviews with adolescent cancer survivors to adapt a goal-directed intervention developed for young adult cancer survivors to the adolescent population.

We aim to discover the ways in which a cancer diagnosis and its treatment have disrupted goal achievement in adolescents and to adapt and assess the feasibility of an existing goal-directed intervention in this population.
