Oncology & Breast Cancer Rehab February 2021

Description:

Cancers in the pelvis account for a relatively large percentage of new diagnoses for both cis-males and females. Side effects can occur with any type of cancer treatment, whether that be surgical, radiation, or chemotherapy.The severity and type of side effects will depend on the specific area or organs effected, size of area treated, type and amount of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and overall health and co-morbidities.

Pelvic health physiotherapy is uniquely positioned to address symptoms of cancer treatment including urinary, bowel and sexual dysfunction. This evidenced based course discusses a whole-person approach that can help improve the quality of life in this extremely under-serviced population.

Course Objectives:

  • Discuss different types of pelvic cancers
  • Become familiar with the medical treatments for various pelvic cancers
  • Understand the side effects of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation
  • Discuss various dilator protocols that are used after pelvic cancer/radiation
  • Understand the evidence behind the role of physiotherapy as a multidisciplinary team member during and after cancer diagnosis and treatment

Prerequisite: Level 1 (or equivalent to be approved)

Hours: One-day course from10:30am-6:30pm ET (Toronto)

I would recommend this course to any therapist working with clients affected by cancer. The course content was thorough and up to date based on best practice standards for a number of different client populations. The group activities really helped to synthesize information, and the instructors (whose passion and knowledge are amazing) were engaging and facilitated great discussions. I feel confident in my new skills, and I can’t wait to implement them in to practice!! Thank you PHS for hosting another fantastic course!!

I was hesitant in signing up for an online course but am so glad that I did!! The instructors mastered the use of video conferencing, and magically made it feel like we were all together in the same class space. The course content was presented in a way that was easy to follow, and the discussion felt really natural. This was amazing value for the price – I am definitely registering for more online courses in the future!!
