Younger Women’s Wellness after Cancer Study

Research has revealed that certain lifestyle factors and health behaviours can have a positive impact upon quality of life, chronic disease risk factors and other health related areas, for women after cancer.

A team of leading Australian health researchers, led by Professor Debra Anderson at Queensland University of Technology, is undertaking a project to investigate the effectiveness of a 12 week structured lifestyle program (Women’s Wellness after Cancer Program) in improving health and wellness in younger women who have had breast, blood or gynaecological cancer. The Program focuses on a range of health behaviours and has been developed especially for women after cancer based on the latest research evidence.

The research team is looking for female participants who are:

  • Australian residents
  • Aged 18 to 50 years old
  • Treated for breast, blood or gynaecological cancer
  • Completed chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy
  • Able to speak and read English to Grade 10 level
  • Have no metastatic disease (advanced cancer)
  • Computer literate
  • Own, or have access to a computer or IPad tablet device for the duration of the study.

Registration is Closed
