Calling All OT's and COTA's

The latest evidence-based research identifies the need, benefit, lack of referrals, and trained clinicians necessary to fulfill the exponentially growing demand for oncology rehab. This course will identify the unique role of occupational therapy in oncology care across all practice settings. By understanding this chronic disease, treatments, side effects, and OT interventions, we can advocate our value in reducing healthcare costs while improving outcomes and quality of life.
