Cancer Care: A Collaborative Approach

Prepare to upskill your therapy practice when working with the oncologic population!

This seminar provides an overview of many of the issues that hold back therapeutic treatment in the oncologic population.

Presented by two expert oncology therapists, with many years of experience and research in the field, this course discusses common fears, debunks myths related to treatment, and provides the participant with education to make informed decisions about the plan of care they design.  Useful ‘cheat sheets’, assessment tools, supplies and an extensive manual inform the package that is included with this practical and user-friendly seminar.

We have adapted this information to then be immediately applicable to the clinician working in the home, with tools and resources that can be used the next day!
