Implementing Prehab: Laying Groundwork to Maximize Value

Presented by Megan Pfarr, DPT, CLT

Implementing Prehab: Laying Groundwork to Maximize Value

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

"Prehab" is an external-facing, patient-friendly term alluding to improved health and fitness in preparation for a procedure--similar to training for a marathon. To the health care professional, prehabilitation is a multimodal approach to withstand a physiologic challenge. Shifting the initiation of care to begin before the medical event can be beneficial to the patient, health care system, and even to the payer. This course will offer resources and analogies to build engagement in the growing field of prehabilitation. Of note, many examples default to cancer prehabilitation, given the strenuous nature of cancer treatment and the known deleterious effects. However, benefits and supportive theories can be easily applied to various medical events.

Cancer Wellness: Supporting Patients Beyond the Treatment Cliff

Presented by Megan Pfarr, DPT, CLT

Cancer Wellness: Supporting Patients Beyond the Treatment Cliff

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

When a person undergoes a harrowing diagnosis: cancer, heart disease, brain dysfunction; it can be an expansive showcase of services, phone calls, appointments and support. What happens upon treatment completion? Where do they go? Who will offer solace and emotional decompression? Often a source of significant anxiety and fear, the "treatment cliff" following the final day of treatment as a patient enters surveillance can be a time of reflection and fear, but also opportunity. Many times, care providers further task the patient with making healthy choices for fear of recurrence, with few resources. This session will discuss avenues to offer support and extend, but taper medical care into wellness that will support lifelong health forward decisions.
