Advanced Management of Breast Cancer Rehabilitation
This two-day advanced seminar is designed to expand and advance current clinical knowledge by providing more in depth clinical information needed to problem solve through a complex variety of breast cancer diagnoses. Complex diagnoses include patients with aggressive forms of breast cancer; patients with metastatic breast cancer such as bone and lung metastases; patients with associated co-morbidities such as auto-immune diseases, diabetes, CHF; patients with differential diagnoses such as superior vena cava syndrome, sarcomas, etc.; and patients with treatment complications such as seromas, hematomas, infections, open wounds, axillary web syndrome, and mondors syndrome. Centered on systems management, a series of advanced, synchronized manual therapy treatment techniques are taught in the lab sessions. These advanced clinical treatment techniques will allow experienced therapists to build on their current expertise by being inclusive of all the major systems involved in the medical treatment of breast cancer patients, namely the musculo-skeletal system, the nervous system, the vascular system, the lymphatic system, and the endocrine system. Careful study of how each of these systems are affected in the breast cancer population will enable clinicians to apply advanced treatment concepts and integrative skills to effectively and successfully treat a multitude of complex patient scenarios that go beyond the routine post surgery and post radiation management of this population. Additionally, the integrated skills taught in the seminar will add leverage to current treatment protocols, optimize the functioning of patients, and bring about improved sustainable results. Upon completion of the course, clinicians will be able to design specific exercise protocols and use integrated systems management techniques in the advanced treatment of breast cancer patients with surgical complications, severe side effects of radiation, side effects of chemotherapy, and side effects of targeted hormone therapies. The information presented in the course will enhance therapists ability to develop a continuum of care, lead a multi-disciplined approach, and effectively market new concepts in the management of patients with breast cancer to the medical community. The course presents evidence-based material both in the medical management of patients with breast cancer and in the rehabilitative therapy management of patients with breast cancer. The information obtained in this course can be immediately applied in the clinic to achieve sustainable, functional outcomes in patients with breast cancer.
