Cancer is a public health problem of major proportions. Each year, more than 600,000 people in the United States die from cancer. There have been many advances in the practice of rehabilitation medicine, psychology, neurology and other clinical specialties that identify and treat patients with cancer. Fatigue and loss of physical performance are frequent problems of cancer patients. This symposium will provide practical, evidence-based strategies to accurately treat oncology patients of various types, including contraindications for treatment.

Topics This Year

  • Cancer Rehabilitation: Current State of the Science and Future Horizons
  • Lymphedema
  • Shoulder Pain and Dysfunction in Breast Cancer
  • Neuromuscular Complications of Gynecologic Cancers
  • New Concepts in Head and Neck Cancer   
  • Dysphagia Related to Head and Neck Cancer
  • Cancer-Related Cognitive Dysfunction (CRCD)
  • Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN)
  • Exercise Therapy for Patients Diagnosed With Cancer

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this symposium, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify the areas of rehabilitation practice and clinical interventions that have strong and moderate levels of evidence for integration into oncology care.
  • Align cancer rehabilitation with survivorship care services and utilize frameworks for integration and collaboration of care.
  • Evaluate clinical pathways for exercise and rehabilitative interventions for implementation into practice.
  • Describe the various causes, types and stages of lymphedema. 
  • Recognize the indications of lymphedema and utilize appropriate precautions in cancer patients.
  • Prescribe appropriate treatment for cancer patients with lymphedema.
  • Recognize the impact of breast cancer treatments such as surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy on shoulder anatomy and function.
  • Diagnose commonly seen shoulder impairments in breast cancer patients and prescribe the most appropriate treatment options.

  • Describe the prevalence, phenomenology and course of cancer-related cognitive dysfunction (CRCD) in patients with breast cancer.
  • Identify risk factors associated with CRCD.
  • Outline the neuroanatomical correlates and pathophysiology of CRCD.
  • Utilize appropriate treatment strategies for CRCD.
  • Identify common chemotherapeutic agents and their pathophysiologic mechanisms associated with peripheral neuropathy.
  • Describe neuropathy grading scales and assessments of neuropathy in the cancer patient, including the role for electrodiagnosis.
  • Appropriately prescribe pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions used to prevent and manage CIPN.
  • Describe the cardiovascular consequences of anticancer therapy.
  • Analyze the effects exercise can have to prevent and/or attenuate cardiovascular dysfunction in patients receiving anticancer therapy.
  • Explore effects of exercise as a potential treatment for cancer.
