Managing your cancer care in the context of Covid-19
With many people in our communities catching Covid-19, Cancer Australia have put together information for people affected by cancer.
This includes information on making decisions about your treatment and care if you test positive for the virus. It also gives information on how you can protect yourself against Covid-19.
A guide to optimal cancer nutrition
The CanEAT pathway is a guide to optimal cancer nutrition. It has been produced by Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre for people with cancer, carers and health professionals.
The pathway is easy to use and links you with reliable nutrition and cancer information, resources and tools. These include websites, fact sheets, booklets, podcasts, self-management strategies and other practical information.
Study: benefits of exercise after gynaecological cancer treatment
Researchers at the University of Queensland are looking for women who have undergone treatment for gynaecological cancer, to take part in an exercise intervention. This study will help them determine if exercise has a positive effect on recovery following treatment.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
As part of this study, you will either undertake a 12-week exercise training program supervised by an accredited exercise physiologist or receive guidelines on undertaking exercise following cancer.
WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
Your experiences about your health, wellbeing and coping with everyday life after treatment will help build better outcomes in the lives of women diagnosed in the future. All participants will receive a free FitBit© Smart watch.
If you are over 18 years and have completed treatment for gynaecological cancer within the last five years, the researches would like to hear from you.
