Fatigue, is a particularly common late effect in breast cancer survivors and can have a profound effect on women's lives and affects both quality of life, ability to work and relationships. Yet, this group is not offered satisfactory treatment options for their ails. Research on late effects and non-medical treatment, such as acupuncture in cancer survivors has been performed in England, USA, and Germany - and the results are promising.
The aim of the conference is to share knowledge and experience from national and international researchers about late effects in general and especially acupuncture treatment of fatigue in breast cancer survivors.
Kristiania University College, School of Health Sciences aims with this conference to stimulate to interdisciplinary collaboration nationally and internationally and contribute to new professional perspectives on fatigue.
The target group for this interdisciplinary conference include health professionals (doctors, nurses, psychologists, acupuncturists and other health care support staff) that treat late effects of cancer treatment. It will also be highly relevant to health politicians and non-governmental organisations.
