Balanced Approach: Rehabilitation Management of Adverse Neurological Effects for Individuals Impacted by Cancer


TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation's 12th Annual

Healthcare Provider Course held at Mercer University


Friday, October 14, 2022 | 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM ET

Saturday, October 15, 2022 | 7:30 AM - 1:00 PM ET


COURSE DESCRIPTION


This evidence-based course explores the adverse neurological impact of cancer and its treatment on patients. The rehabilitation management of fall risk, chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), and other balance impairments will be addressed. Beginning with an overview of contributing causal pathways, this course will equip clinicians with the most up to date evidence and tools related to the assessment and management of chemotherapy-related balance impairments. Special attention will be given to appropriate outcome selection throughout the continuum of care, subjective interview considerations and goal setting.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?


The course is of interest to all oncology rehabilitation professionals including massage therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and physical and occupational therapist assistants with all levels of experience, however, the content is most appropriate for intermediate and advanced clinicians. It is also of interest to therapists who are working in an out-patient rehabilitation setting who are interested in enhancing their understanding and skills to better care for patients during and after chemotherapy treatment.
