a seminar included in:
- Kristin M. Carroll, PT - Oncology Physical Therapist | Author | Educator | Co-Founder & Executive Director of Clinical Operations for Survivorship Solutions, LLC
By 2026 there will be an estimated of over 20 million cancer survivors in the United States. Many of these survivors will experience lasting adverse reactions caused either by their disease or its treatment. Cancer rehabilitation can often reverse or eliminate these impairments.
This seminar discusses the goals of cancer impairment screening in the outpatient setting as well as the common cancer impairments that are amenable to cancer rehabilitation and exercise. There are many medical specialists involved in the care of someone with cancer. This multi-level care can often be uncoordinated and fragmented due to the lack of a team leader.
The speaker further details the importance of cancer impairment screening at various touchpoints in care due to the lack of provider scope to assess for these impairments. This seminar further discusses the impact that impairment screening has on care coordination, hospital admission rates and overall cost of healthcare.
The audience will become familiar with current and new screening tools, and understand the impact of impairment screening on employment, survivorship and quality of life. This seminar will discuss the common barriers to impairment screening as well as referral to team members after screening.
