Cancer & Cognition Fact Sheet launch
Hosted by the Cancer Research Network, Cancer Council NSW & Psycho-oncology Co-operative Research Group (PoCoG)
Location:Webster Lecture Theatre 208, Veterinary Science Conference Centre Regimental Drive, The University of Sydney (Camperdown campus)
You are invited to the launch of the Understanding Changes in Thinking and Memory Fact Sheet for people affected by cancer. All welcome!
Some people diagnosed with cancer notice changes in the way that they think and remember information. This is called cancer-related cognitive impairment, but people may also refer to it as ‘cancer fog’ or ‘chemo brain’.
This fact sheet is designed to help people understand more about changes that may occur. It provides suggestions about how to manage day-to-day tasks and improve thinking and memory.
Leading experts will highlight the latest findings in the cancer and cognition field:
• Professor Janette Vardy, The University of Sydney - Ongoing research in cancer and cognition
• Dr Amanda Hutchinson, University of South Australia - What cognitive impairment looks like & possible causes
• Dr Heather Green, Griffith University - Cognitive rehab approaches
• Jill Mills, Cancer Council NSW - What support is provided by Cancer Council NSW?
These presentations will be followed by a Q&A style panel discussion.
