Research Participants Needed: Breast and Colorectal Survivors with Thinking or Memory Changes

Are you a breast, colorectal or bowel cancer survivor? Have you noticed changes in your memory/thinking since you were diagnosed? We are looking for participants for research on cancer-related cognitive impairment (sometimes called ‘chemobrain’).

 

What is the study? We want to understand more about how lifestyle factors might impact thinking and memory problems that cancer survivors often experience.

 

Who can participate? Anyone that has:

  • Been diagnosed with primary breast, colorectal or bowel cancer as an adult in the past 5 years
  • Noticed changes in their ability to think, memory, or concentration since being diagnosed.
  • Not currently undergoing treatment (chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy)
  • and is aged 18-75 years old, and in Australia

 

What does it involve? A 10 minute phone call to determine eligibility, and a 45-60 minute interview (in-person at the University of South Australia -Magill campus in Adelaide, or over the phone) about your cancer experience, memory, thinking and lifestyle factors such as diet.

 

What’s in it for me? A $20 gift card and the satisfaction of helping cancer survivor research.

 

Any questions? Contact the primary researcher with any queries or concerns: Daniel (PhD candidate) on 08-8302 1968 or cordy007@mymail.unisa.edu.au, or, Amanda Hutchinson (primary supervisor) amanda.hutchinson@unisa.edu.au. This project has been approved by the University of South Australia’s Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 201772), and been approved for posting in this forum by Cancer Council admin.
