Event Overview
Welcome message:

This intermediate continuing education course is designed for PT’s and OT’s who wish to further their current skill sets to include specialized treatments for the cancer patient. Emphasis in this course will be placed on learning the medical and surgical management for the following cancers: breast, prostate, gynecological, head and neck, colorectal and melanomas. Most importantly, the therapist will learn how and when he/she can most effectively intervene during the continuum of cancer care to treat side effects encountered from post-surgical and post–radiation treatments. This course will expand on the therapists’ knowledge of the tissue healing and disease processes and of the lymphatic system. This will provide the needed understanding of how these processes/systems are affected from a surgical, chemotherapy, and/or radiation treatment approach. Extensive lab time will be devoted to perfecting and applying manual therapy skills to the cancer patient which include muscle energy technique, soft tissue and joint mobilization, strain-counterstrain and other pain and edema reducing manual techniques.


The therapist will also be able to develop and implement effective treatment protocols for post-surgical patients (with or without lymph node dissection), post-radiation patients, and reconstructive surgical patients upon completion of this course. This course will allow for the therapist to become a knowledgeable and active participant of the Oncology Team at his/her work facility
