Associate Professor Debbie Fenlon from the University of Southampton urges nurses to ask breast cancer patients about hot flushes

A new study, led by Associate Professor Debbie Fenlon and covered by the Nursing Times, has shown that hot flushes experienced by women treated for breast cancer are not being adequately addressed by healthcare professionals. Worryingly, the study also reveals that some women consider giving up their post cancer medication to try and stop them.


Following the release of our research about hot flushes going unrecognised by healthcare professionals, led by Debbie Fenlon, the story has been widely covered by Asian media including Asian News International, Business Standard, News Now, Yahoo News India and Delhi Daily News.
