Peripheral neuropathy

Time: 12.00pm–1.00pm

Location:  Webinar only

Peripheral neuropathy is damage to nerves in hands, feet and lower legs. It is a side effect of some cancer treatments, particularly chemotherapy treatment. The symptoms are pain, numbness, tingling and loss of function.  These symptoms can be debilitating and distressing, and are a common reason why patients stop their treatment early. Consultant Medical Oncologist Shirley Wong from Western Health has a particular interest in this condition. Shirley will talk about why it happens, risk factors and what can be done to help.

Please note this is a webinar only session.
