Our President has asked for this request to be publicised as widely as possible:


Dear All,


I was recently approached by Dr Eva Battaglini  Research Coordinator, IN FOCUS Study, Prince of Wales Clinical School who asked whether our Support Group would participate in a study as described below:


Researchers at UNSW Australia are seeking volunteers who have received neurotoxic chemotherapy (i.e. chemotherapy that can cause damage to the nerves) as a treatment for cancer to complete an online survey. Through this survey, we hope to better understand the impact of side effects of chemotherapy on the lives of Australian cancer survivors.


The survey is anonymous, and takes around 30 minutes to complete.

If you would like to participate in the study please go to the following website:  http://www.infocusstudy.org.au/survey


If you have had this form of chemotherapy and would like further information on the study please contact Dr Battaglini by email at in_focus@unsw.edu.au
