Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation - Banner

The First Annual International Cancer Rehabilitation Summit

Don't miss this opportunity to empower your practice and enhance your treatment of Cancer Survivors.

Join us for this first-ever summit on cancer rehabilitation and
survivorship. This year’s meeting will explore the evolving strategies and treatment in breast cancer – with a focus on the neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, pain and other challenges of the disease – and will provide health care professionals with the knowledge and insight to improve their patients’ function and quality of life.

TARGET AUDIENCE: 

Physicians, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Nurses and other healthcare providers who are involved in the rehabilitation of Cancer Survivors

SUMMIT OBJECTIVES:

  • Define the expanding role of comprehensive rehabilitation services in the care of cancer survivors 
  • Identify recent advances in the diagnosis, selected treatments, and rehabilitation of cancer survivors
  • Communicate new research and clinical treatment approaches to clinicians working with or who would like to work with cancer survivors
  • Recognize barriers to safe, compassionate, and effective rehabilitation of cancer survivors at all stages from initial diagnosis to palliative care


SUMMIT OVERVIEW:

Cancer survivors often face function-limiting complications stemming from cancer or its treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. This symposium will discuss selected cancer treatments that impact rehabilitation and provide the practical assessment and treatment strategies/skills that can be applied to clinical practice. This symposium aims to provide healthcare professionals with new and enhanced understanding that can be implemented in the evaluation and management of cancer and treatment-related impairments, ultimately ensuring the safe and effective restoration of the cancer survivor’s function and quality of life.
