Beatrix Fogarasi is a certified psychologist taking part in vocational training in health psychology. Her PhD thesis and main research areas are the psychological interventions during hospital care, focusing primarily on patients with acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, and pancreatic cancer. She is working on a meta-analysis evaluating the efficacy and safety of various psychological interventions in patients with inflammatory digestive system diseases. Her results could aid the improvement of the quality of patient care. Her second project is on the topic of cessation programs for smoking and alcohol consumption. Beatrix will also be a co-investigator and will provide the brief interventions in the REAPPEAR trial (Recurrent Acute Pancreatitis Prevention by the Elimination of Alcohol and Cigarette Smoking), which is a multicentric, international, parallel randomized controlled trial, designed by the Centre for Translational Medicine.
