Rehabilitation Across the Cancer Care Continuum (Recorded Webinar)

Presented by Nicole L. Stout, DPT, CLT-LANA, FAPTA

Rehabilitation Across the Cancer Care Continuum (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 160 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 19 Minutes

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from standard MedBridge courses.

Cancer care occurs across a protracted timeline, commonly over at least a year. Individuals with advanced cancer may be on active treatment for the remainder of their lives. Rehabilitation services should be incorporated into cancer care from the point of a cancer diagnosis and can provide effective interventions aimed at improving and restoring function throughout the duration of the individual's life span. This webinar will discuss the evidence base for rehabilitation interventions across the cancer care continuum. We will discuss the four domains of cancer rehabilitation--preventive, restorative, supportive, and palliative--and will emphasize the importance of prospective screening for functional morbidity and early intervention for cancer treatment-related impairments throughout this care continuum.

Assessment and Management of Older Adults With Cancer

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 47 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 46 Minutes

Older adults with cancer are a large and growing segment of our population. Geriatric oncology is a medical discipline that has emerged with evidence for specific assessment tools and interventions that are tailored to the needs of older adults. Rehabilitation providers should be aware of the specific guidelines and recommendations that support care interventions for older adults with cancer. This course will describe the unique needs of older adults with cancer and outline the specific assessment tools and evidence-based rehabilitation interventions for this population. The course will review current oncology guidelines for older adults with cancer and identify the relevant recommendations that impact the rehabilitation plan of care.

Cancer Survivorship: Late Effects and Advanced Disease in Older Adults

Presented by Nicole L. Stout, DPT, CLT-LANA, FAPTA

Cancer Survivorship: Late Effects and Advanced Disease in Older Adults

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 48 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 43 Minutes

Cancer-treatment-related side effects often have multisystem impact that negatively impacts function. Many side effects that occur during cancer treatment may persist and continue to cause impairment and functional morbidity after treatment is completed. Further, some side effects of treatment may not present until years after treatment is complete. This course takes a multisystem approach to understanding the physical, cognitive, and psychosocial late effects associated with cancer treatment. It also explores advanced cancer treatment, as the continuum of care for individuals with advanced cancer may be much longer, inciting a greater burden of side effects. The course covers assessment for common late effects, evidence-based interventions, and safety considerations.

Chemotherapy and Its Impact on Function

Video Runtime: 100 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 57 Minutes

Chemotherapy is prevalent in cancer care and involves the systemic delivery of toxic agents to reduce the viability of cancer cells in the body. The effects of chemotherapy are therefore broadly systemic, inciting negative impact across multiple body systems during cancer treatment, but can also lead to long-term, late effects that contribute to chronic functional limitations and disability. Due to the late effects of treatment, the functional impact is sometimes delayed for years following treatment and warrants consideration by rehabilitation providers planning care for individuals with even a long-term history of cancer treatment. This course will review commonly used chemotherapeutic agents, their short- and long-term side effects. It will also provide specific insight on the adverse effects across body systems, including: neurotoxcity, cardiotoxicity, cognitive changes, and cancer-related fatigue. Strategies for screening and assessment, as well as rehabilitation interventions, will be reviewed.

Exercise and Cancer: Indications, Safety, and Evidence-Based Interventions

Presented by Nicole L. Stout, DPT, CLT-LANA, FAPTA

Exercise and Cancer: Indications, Safety, and Evidence-Based Interventions

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 68 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 42 Minutes

The physiological effects of exercise are well-accepted as beneficial to the population of cancer survivors. Although a robust body of evidence demonstrates the safety and efficacy of exercise during and after cancer treatment, exercise has struggled to achieve prominent attention alongside disease-mitigating cancer therapies. This course will review indications for exercise at any stage of cancer and at any point along the continuum of cancer care. Individualized exercise prescription for medically complex patients, regular reassessment, and modifications to treatment planning will be reviewed in order to optimize care planning to adequately impact function through exercise prescription.

Hormonal Adjuvant Therapy and Its Impact on Function

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 66 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 29 Minutes

The most prevalent cancers in the United States today, breast and prostate, are commonly treated with a long-term regimen of hormonal drug agents proven to reduce the growth of cancer cells and reduce the risk of disease recurrence. These drug agents also incite significant interactions systemically that contribute to a high rate of functional impairment including bone density loss, pain, increased adiposity, and reduced lean mass in these patients. Guidelines for hormonal therapies recommend treatment for 3-5 years post completion of cancer treatment. The protracted timeline for treatment and the aggregate burden of these side effects increase the risk for long-term disability and frailty in cancer survivors and warrant specific rehabilitative interventions to mitigate their impact.
