We build the publications from HKU and external sources automatically. If you do not see your publications here, please note:
  • We receive data from HKU's Research Output System (ROS), after you or your people enter data there. If you have entered, or are going to enter data into ROS, we do not want to enter them manually into the Hub, as it will create duplicates. When entering data into ROS, please remember to include the DOI or ISBN. It will help us match on outside sources, and dedup.
  • If you are NOT going to enter publication data into ROS, or if you have publications from before your time at HKU, please put them into an EndNote file and send to us, hub@lib.hku.hk. It will allow us to enter in batch. HKU has a site license for EndNote. You may google for "endnote@hk". HKU Libraries can instruct on Endnote, either in class or one on one, http://lib.hku.hk/general/help.html
  • You may log into your ResearcherPage with your HKU Portal, and use the "Manage Publications" entry on the green left side menu, to unlink publications from your ResearcherPage, or, select a few to appear in a new box, "Selected Publications".
  • Confused? Please write to hub@lib.hku.hk.

     Biography

    Dr William LI is currently an Assistant Professor and the Director of the Master of Nursing Programme at the School of Nursing, the University of Hong Kong. He has a strong research interest in the field of child and adolescent care, and has much skill and knowledge in developing, validating and testing the psychometric properties of instruments for children. His grants and international publications encompass a number of child and adolescent studies including development and psychometric testing of instruments for Chinese children, providing and evaluating psychosocial interventions for children and adolescents, both in the hospitals and community. He has published more than 40 peer reviewed journal articles, a scholarly book on paediatric cancer, 10 book chapters on child and adolescent care and over 40 international conference papers.

    His research focused on providing psychological interventions to those children hospitalized with cancer and childhood cancer survivors, implementing therapeutic play to hospitalized children, helping cancer and diabetic patients to quit smoking and promoting smoking cessation to the youth. In particular, he conducted the 1st RCT study on testing the effectiveness of therapeutic play intervention in preparing children for surgery. Although using therapeutic play intervention to prepare children for surgery or hospitalization is widely reported worldwide, empirical evidence to determine its effectiveness is lacking. He also conducted the first study on exploring the ways of coping and coping strategies used by Hong Kong Chinese children hospitalized with cancer, which is an essential pre-requisite for designing appropriate psycho-educational interventions to ease the burden of cancer treatment. The findings increase knowledge and awareness of health-care professionals of the impact of socio-cultural factors on the coping of children. Furthermore, Dr Li collaborated with internal renowned scholars to conduct research on children, such as using the well-established Therapy-Related Symptom Checklist to assess the occurrence and severity of treatment-related symptoms manifested by children and adolescents undergoing active cancer treatment. Additionally, he conducted the 1st RCT study on integrating the adventure-based training and health education program in promoting regular physical activity for childhood cancer survivors, which is essential for their physical and psychological well-being.
