This study aims to assess the impact of a computerised cognitive training program on the neurotoxic effects of chemotherapy on cognition in breast cancer patients.

Who is it for?

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you are aged 21 years or older, have been diagnosed with Stage I-III breast cancer and are scheduled to receive chemotherapy treatment.

Study details

Participants will be randomly assigned (by chance) to receive either the computerised cognitive training program, or continue with standard care. Those in the computerised cognitive training group will undergo three 45-minute sessions for the duration of their chemotherapy (minimum of 18 weeks). The standard care group will be provided with details of the computerised cognitive training program. All participants will undertake a series of clinical assessments, including cognitive, mood, sleep, physical activity, quality of life tests and questionnaires.

It is hoped this research will inform the treatment of breast cancer patients presenting with detrimental cognitive changes as a result of chemotherapy, and this research may lead to better quality of life for patients.
