Would you like to participate in the UPOC research study on women's health? Whether you had ovarian cancer or not, we are looking for you!
As part of our research, we are offering a FREE and thorough clinical assessment of the nerves for HEALTHY WOMEN and WOMEN WITH OVARIAN CANCER.
The UPOC research project aims to understand the development of nerve symptoms that may occur in women after ovarian cancer treatment. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is a common side effect but we do not fully understand who develops it and why. When it occurs, women experience symptoms like burning, numbness, tingling or pain in their toes/feet and occasionally, in their fingers/hands.
We hope this study will contribute to a more effective prevention and management of neuropathic pain in the future. To do so, you will need to fill in some questionnaires and you will be assessed on how well you perceive sensations such as hot/cold, pressure, or vibration in your hand and foot.
This assessment will take 2h at Nathan campus, Griffith University.
You will receive a $40 gift voucher to compensate for your time and travel after your visit.
