About this webinar
Chemobrain or the ability to think clearly after chemotherapy treatment is often reported by people affected by cancer. The effects are often debilitating and distressing, impacting on quality of life and the ability to function day to day. This webinar will discuss current research and provide strategies you can implement to work towards better functioning in your day to day life.
