Introduction to Oncology & Lymphedema Management Webinar

(2 CE hrs Live Webinar, 6-8pm)

Comprehensive care of the oncology patient requires extensive knowledge beyond CDT. In order to effectively treat an oncology patient with lymphedema, we must also have a clear understanding of the patients’ cancer experience, including type of cancer, stage, grade, side effects of specific surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, biotherapy, targeted therapy and hormonal therapies. This webinar introduces you to the cancer experience, oncology lymphedema management, and the role of rehabilitation.
