Rehabilitation Strategies for Patients with Cancer

Course Overview:

This course on Cancer Rehabilitation is relevant to all clinicians who work in hospital, home care, or private clinic settings and treat patients with a history of past or present diagnosis of cancer. Content incorporates the pathophysiology of cancer and impact of treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation) on cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and neurological systems including the development of pain, fatigue, muscle wasting, articular and skeletal dysfunction. Specific problems related to different disease sites including breast, prostate, lung, head and neck, and hematological malignancies are covered.

This course is given in a sequence of 3 progressive levels of clinical practice:
Level 1: Basic oncology – General practice (9 modules)
Level 2: Enhanced clinical practice- Management of cancer patients (12 modules)
Level 3: Advanced clinical practice – Rehabilitation Oncology (9 modules)

Courses may be taken individually or combined under the Certification for additional savings.

These courses are offered on line and in lecture format by the principle instructor. In addition, they include videotaped interviews with clinical experts in their respective fields of practice. For levels 2 and 3 case studies are used to facilitate the application of assessment skills and decision-making on management of this complex patient population. In follow-up, face to face courses are offered to consolidate learning and integrate knowledge into practice.

Course Objectives

Global :
To provide participants with the general oncology background needed to assess and treat patients with present or past history of cancer and provide a framework for adapting their clinical skills to the management of cancer –related functional problems

Student Learning Objectives:
Following completion of this basic course, students will be able to:

1. Recognize and understand the unique rehabilitation needs related to:
• Cancer pathology and medical treatment interventions
• The specific effects of surgical, chemotherapeutic and radiation protocols on functional capacity including: generalized hematological and metabolic alterations, disease and treatment related muscular weakness, chronic residual pain, cancer fatigue, and neurological dysfunction

2. Derive assessment protocols based upon:
• Goals of patient and residual functional problems
• Outcome measures validated in the cancer population
• Clinical observations related to the common side effects of cancer
• Stage of disease and prognosis
• Physical examination and functional testing appropriate to the cancer location and trajectory

3. Derive intervention strategies based upon realistic goals and client-centered outcomes
that may include but not be limited to:
• Education
• Manual therapy
• Biophysical modalities
• Therapeutic exercise & functional activity training
