    • Medical treatment interventions related to specific cancers including surgical reconstruction
    • Dysfunction commonly associated with specific cancers including: breast, prostate, lung, head and neck, and hematological cancers.
  2. Derive assessment protocols based upon:
    • Stage of disease and prognosis
    • Goals of patient and residual functional problems
    • Outcome measures validated in specific populations
    • Clinical observations related to the common side effects of treatment
    • Physical examination and functional testing appropriate to the cancer location and trajectory
  3. Derive intervention strategies based upon realistic goals and client-centered outcomes that may include but not be limited to:
    • Education
    • Manual therapy
    • Therapeutic exercise
    • Functional testing and activity training

 

Level 3:

  1. Derive intervention strategies for more complex patient populations with significant rehabilitation needs. These populations will include:
    1. Head & neck cancer patients with reconstructive surgery
    2. Breast cancer patients with reconstructive surgery
    3. Young patients with osteosarcoma
    4. Patients in palliative care with advanced disease and multiple metastasis
  2. Educate and prescribe exercises for patients with more advanced cancers
  3. Manage risk, educate and prescribe exercises for cancer patients with bone metastasis and facial or lower limb lymphedema
  4. Recognize barriers to return to work and develop diverse rehabilitation programs to retain cancer patients in the workforce.
  5. Develop a cancer rehabilitation program in public or private clinical settings based upon successful models of care in the literature

Every healthcare professional who is a member of an order or association must complete hours of continuing education each year. All of our courses are designed to help you accumulate these continuing education hours. However, the number of credits may vary depending on your profession and location. The information below is for information purposes only. We recommend that you confirm with your professional order and/or association.

For your information, Bia education aims to accredit its online education content in the U.S. and Europe as quickly as possible.

Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner’s license or regulation. Continuing education courses should not be taken by individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated, except, as they are involved in a specific plan of care. By participating in this course, the participant agrees to respect his/her professional scope of practice.

Level 1 is a prerequisite for Level 2 and Level 2 is a prerequisite for Level 3.

Yes, it is possible to extend access to your courses through our Bia membership. This membership allows you, among other benefits, to enjoy extended access to the courses beyond the initial 6 months.

Each health professional who is a member of a college or association must complete continuing education units (CEU) annually. Here is some information about kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physiotherapy technologists.

Kinesiologist, FKQ

All accredited members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec (FKQ) must accumulate 30 credits of recognized continuing education every two years from the year of their accreditation. These credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ. In order to facilitate your task of analyzing the credits granted to your course, the FKQ Continuing Education Committee gives you access to an equivalency grid.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesiologists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Kinesiologist-kinesitherapist, A.K.K.O.M.Q.

All members of the A.K.K.O.M.Q. must accumulate continuing education units. The association intends to ensure the safety and quality of kinesiology and kinesiology-kinesitherapy interventions, by requiring its members to maintain and improve their knowledge through the many continuing education courses offered annually, and to put their skills into practice while respecting the code of ethics. Credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesitherapists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Physiotherapist and physiotherapy technologist, OPPQ

In the case of physiotherapists, each member must have a minimum of 45 hours of continuing education units (CEU) during the reference period, which is three years. Of these 45 hours, at least 30 hours must be accumulated in formal learning activities. The remaining continuing education hours can be accumulated in autonomous, formal learning activities or in a combination of both categories.

A CEU is equivalent to one hour of course, which is the actual time spent by the member to acquire or update his or her knowledge or skills. In the context of a formal activity, the member is in a learning situation when acting as a participant. Time spent on breaks, meals or any other activity without academic content should therefore be subtracted from the calculation of CEUs.

A formal learning activity is defined as an activity designed and delivered by experts in the subject matter and with a predetermined structure, content, objectives and duration. All the course offered by Bia education are therefore likely to be considered as a formal learning activity. During your course at Bia education, you will receive a certificate attesting to the number of hours of continuous education granted to the event.

Then, it is the physiotherapist’s role to define whether the suggested training theme is related to his or her practice and will allow him or her to optimize his or her professional competence.
