This session will explain why pain education is important for breast cancer survivors, and discuss how digital health coaches can be used for this purpose. Specifically, we will present our process for developing evidence-based content for a pain science 'app' for people following breast cancer treatment, and how we plan to test the app's acceptability and feasibility.
Dr Louise Wiles is a physiotherapist and researcher whose main areas of interest are: quality (or appropriateness) of care, e-health and consumer engagement. Today, she will be speaking with us about one of her research projects: the PECAN study, or 'Pain Education after Cancer'.
