Utilisation of health services and pharmacology in relation to pain after breast cancer treatment
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. Breast cancer survival rates are high, but many women are living with unwanted consequences of breast cancer treatment. Up to 69% of women experience pain after breast cancer treatment and this pain is associated with poor quality of life. The aim of this research project is to understand how utilisation of healthcare services differs among women with pain compared to those without pain, and in women with pain who do and do not have a history of breast cancer.
