Evidence Based Cancer Rehabilitation and Its Role in Cancer Survivorship

Course Description:

Advances in the medical management of cancer have steadily increased survival rates. Research shows that most cancer survivors will have at least one physical side effect of cancer treatment, including fatigue, neuropathy, muscle weakness, and balance deficits. This interactive course will provide evidence-based tools and strategies for the care of patients with diverse cancer types across the cancer continuum. The course will also address functional outcome measures and reimbursement concerns.

Participants will apply the latest knowledge about pathology and medical management of cancer to the therapy program. Participants will also learn to efficiently utilize the multiple internet resources to develop an evidence-based rehabilitation plan, while addressing current reimbursement requirements from Medicare and private insurance companies.
