Kinesiology Taping for Managing Cancer Related Symptoms?
Mon 24 April 2017, 12:00 – 17:00 BST
The Jane Tomlinson Appeal and the Centre for Pain Research at Leeds Beckett University invite you to participate in a Dissemination and Stakeholder Feedback event on kinesiology taping for the management of cancer-related symptoms. The event is part of a doctoral research project which is funded by the Jane Tomlinson Appeal as one of the legacies of the late Jane Tomlinson, CBE.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate project success, update on progress and to gather your views about our research findings. The event will include a presentation by the researchers followed by a discussion with the audience about what the findings of their survey of the use of kinesiology taping in cancer mean to them. This will help the researchers make recommendations for clinical practice. You do not have to use kinesiology tape or be an expert on the subject to take part in the discussion.
Jane Tomlinson reported significant benefits with kinesiology taping as it helped her cope better with some of the distressing symptoms in cancer. Some practitioners started using kinesiology taping to manage cancer-related symptoms but there has been very little research on the type of symptoms that respond best to kinesiology taping and what is the most effective clinical technique in this setting. It was one of Jane’s final wishes that the use of kinesiology taping in cancer be studied so that other patients with cancer could also benefit. This led to the conceiving of the PhD research project at Leeds Beckett University.
You are being invited because you may have an interest in our research project, or could be affected by its outcomes. We are inviting people who are supportive of our research, as well as those who may be less supportive or indeed critical of it. We believe that your interest and relevant experience in one or more of these key areas; physiotherapist, occupational therapist, nurse, medical doctor, lymphedema therapist, means that you would make a valuable contribution to the event.
