    Men and Women in the United States today have a 1 in 3 chance of being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cancer Treatment and its side effects impact an individual's level of function during and long after treatment. It is important for rehabilitation professionals to have an understanding of the unique side effects of cancer treatment and how those effects impact both physical and psychosocial function. This course will provide a working knowledge of common cancer disease treatments and their side effects, review common functional impairments associated with the most commonly diagnosed cancers, and will identify oncologic specific information that may impact a rehabilitation plan of care from the point of diagnosis through end of life. A case study format will be used throughout the course to illustrate relevant points in medical differential diagnosis, assessment, and intervention. 

    At the end of this presentation, Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapists will be able to:

    • Recognize the prevalence of cancer in the United States.
    • Describe common cancer treatments including: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and hormonal and other targeted therapies.
    • Identify common impairments associated with cancer and its treatment
    • Integrate current evidence to provide appropriate rehabilitation interventions for the following cancer diagnoses: lung, hematological, colorectal, head and neck, breast, and prostate.
