COURSE DESCRIPTION:
 
Cancers of the head and neck make up 3 - 5% of all cancers diagnosed in the United States and 5 year survival rates vary widely (30 – 94%) depending on the specific site.  Although prevalence rates for head and neck cancer related to tobacco and alcohol use are decreasing, rates are increasing for HPV-related cancers.  Medical management of head and neck cancer may include a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy treatments, which can result in a multitude of impairments in body function and structure.  Survivorship plans span the point of diagnosis through end of life, and must include caregivers and family members.  This one day educational session and lab will review associated outcomes of treatment including surgical/anatomical changes, prosthetic needs and reconstruction implications, TMJ dysfunction/trismus, shoulder and neck impairments, pain, radiation fibrosis, lymphedema, cancer related fatigue, deconditioning and nutritional deficits. A focus on the role of the physical therapist in the interprofessional team will include the best available evidence for the evaluation and treatment of patients with head and neck cancer.

Download & Mail Paper Registration Form

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Physical therapists commonly treat patients with cancer in all settings.  A review of cancer pathophysiology, the impact of cancer and its treatment on body systems and functions, balance, fall risk, and chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy in cancer survivors will be addressed. Participants will be able to use the data gathered from the history, review of systems, systems review, examination and evaluation to identify cancer survivors who are at risk of balance disorders, falls, or chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.  The use of evidence-based screening tools and outcomes measures as well as the prospective surveillance model in the cancer populations will be emphasized. An evidence-based application of interventions with a lab component of case studies will be addressed. The lab components require active participation. Participants should dress appropriately to allow full body movement. Participants will work on assigned tasks prior to the start of the course.

Speakers:

Cindy Pfalzer, PT, PhD, FAPTA, Jena Colon, DPT and Earllaine Croarkin, PT, NCS

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

At the conclusion of this course, a participant should be able to: 

 

1.     Identify the unique and diverse systemic and local effects of cancer and its treatment that impact balance and increase risks of falls.

2.     Apply evidence-based screening tools and outcome measures within the ICF framework for the management of balance problems, fall risk, and chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy in cancer survivors.

3.     Apply evidence-based treatment strategies while considering physical therapy diagnosis and prognosis to improve balance and reduce fall risks in cancer survivors.
