The rehabilitation professional is an integral part of the interdisciplinary oncology team. Pelvic cancer diagnoses have multiple systems that are affected by cancer treatment. The rehabilitation professional that works with the pelvic oncology patient needs to competently navigate treatment techniques for all of these systems, as well as be confident in treating a patient in a personal area. This two- day course will cover topics including diagnosis, medical treatment, side effects, and rehabilitation for male cancer diagnoses including prostate cancer, penile cancer, and testicular cancer. Additional covered topics will include colorectal cancer and anal cancer.
This course is part of the new oncology series. The first course, Oncology of the Pelvic Floor Level 1, will be offered initially. This course and the female pelvic oncology course (OPF2B) will be offered in the future. Please check the website in the future for further information. Please note PF1 is required prior to being able to attend this class, as labs will include treatment to the pelvis, perineum, and genitalia.
