Greater numbers of young adults with cancer (Age 18-45) are being diagnosed with aggressive cancers and must undergo aggressive treatment in an effort to preserve and extend life. The functional impact of combined surgical, radiological and systemic treatment interventions frequently have long term consequences on the quality of survivorship and rehabilitation is essential.
This short course will focus on the rehabilitation interventions prescribed in 4 case studies in young adult patients including:
- Central nervous system cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Rectal cancer
- Advanced breast cancer
At the end of this presentation, a question period is offered to allow participants the to ask questions or present clinical cases to Mary-Ann Dalzell.
