Comparison of Treatments for Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN Study)

This project is trying to better understand chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (pain, numbness, tingling, and burning in the fingers and/or toes experienced following chemotherapy treatment) and to find out if heat, massage or a combination of heat and massage can reduce and manage symptoms associated with peripheral neuropathy.

Cognitive Rehabilitation for Cancer Survivors with Perceived Cognitive Impairment

Cognitive impairment is recognised by up to 70% of cancer survivors as a major side-effect of treatment that impairs function and quality of life, and for which there is no proven treatment. This research project will compare two treatments to determine which, if either, is more beneficial.

IN FOCUS

Chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a major side effect of cancer treatment that can have a significant impact on those who experience it. This project aims to better understand the impact of the side effects of chemotherapy on the lives of cancer survivors.

Lifepool – Australian women finding answers

Every woman can help support breast cancer research though Lifepool – a project that brings together data from a variety of sources to create a vital resource for research into breast cancer and women’s health.

Women’s Health After Surgical Menopause (WHAM)

However, the consequences of this risk-reducing surgery for sexual health, menopausal symptoms, bone and cardiovascular health and cognitive functions are poorly understood.
