Scalp cooling

This event has past.

Location:  Counterpart Resource Centre

Hair loss is a common side effect of certain types of chemotherapy. For some women this is distressing emotionally, as well as being a constant and public sign that they have cancer. In the past few years a new scalp cooling technology has started to be used to prevent or minimise hair loss.  A refrigeration unit delivers coolant to the head by means of a cap worn by the patient while chemotherapy is being administered. Our presenter is Vicki Durston, clinical nurse consultant and Breast Cancer Service Coordinator at Cabrini Brighton. Vicki was instrumental in the trial project investigating the safety, efficacy, and tolerability of the method at Cabrini Brighton during 2014-15.
