At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Explain the effects of cancer and related treatment on the body systems
- Examine the potential effects of exercise across the survivorship spectrum
- Analyze several short-comings in research and practice regarding exercise prescription in the oncology rehab settings
- Depict how to implement evidence-based practice into the clinical settings to optimize function and outcomes.
