Self-introduction
I received her Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from Chiba University and got PhD in Health Sciences from the University of Tokyo. I have experience in research in nursing care for breast cancer survivors focusing on social support and mental health. In recent, my research interests include cancer and cancer therapy-related cognitive impairment. I developed the Japanese version of the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Cognitive Function. At present, she is conducting an international collaborative study with US researchers to evaluate the effects of cognitive training intervention on cancer therapy-related cognitive impairment in breast cancer survivors.
