About the Webinar

The experience of pain after cancer treatment may be ongoing, irregular or part of the recovery process.  Usually when treatment finishes pain will subside, however many people report ongoing pain long after treatment has finished.  Dealing with chronic pain can be a daily struggle impacting on the quality of life for cancer survivors. There are now many ways to treat pain and this webinar will be discussing what you can do to work towards dealing with chronic pain.

Dr Niamh Moloney 

Dr Niamh Moloney is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and Lecturer at Macquarie University, Sydney. Combining almost 20 years of clinical and academic experience, she is passionate about the importance of a deeper understanding of pain and how we can optimise early pain management to prevent the transition from acute stages into chronicity. She completed her PhD in 2012, which investigated pain and sensory profiles in people with neck and arm pain and her subsequent research has focused on assessment of pain profiles, and its impact on prognosis and treatment response. She has recently begun applying these approaches to understanding pain following breast cancer treatment, its contributors, and how we might better manage pain throughout cancer treatment and survivorship. 


Phil Mendoza-Jones

Phil had been operating his solo marketing and advertising consultancy for over ten years when diagnosed with colon cancer in October 2004. He endured a seven months precautionary chemotherapy treatment, which had debilitating effects on both his business as well as his obsession with fitness and sport.

After years of perseverance and patience, he is now back playing singles tennis twice a week and taking 12km walks three to four times a week. He’s still working too. It was a long road, but his approach to pain management won in the end.
