Oncology of the Pelvic Floor Level 2B: Female Pelvic and Bladder Cancers
The rehabilitation professional is an integral part of the interdisciplinary oncology team. A gynecological or bladder cancer diagnosis has 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 gynecological cancer diagnoses, as well as bladder cancer.
This course was designed to build on the information that was presented in Oncology of the Pelvic Floor Level 1. Information will be provided focusing on gynecological and bladder cancers including risk factors, diagnosis, and prognosis. The participant will also understand the sequelae of the medical treatment of cancer and how this can impact a patient’s body and their quality of life. Other topics will include rehabilitation and nutritional aspects focusing on these specific cancers, as well as home program options that patients can implement as an adjunct to therapy.
