Your Resource for Oncology Information
Rehabilitation Oncology is the primary peer-reviewed, indexed resource for advancing oncologic physical therapy practice and cancer rehabilitation through the dissemination of definitive evidence, translation of clinically relevant knowledge, and integration of theory into education, practice, and research.
Guest Editor, Nicole Stout, DPT, Certified Lymphedema Therapist-LANA, FAPTA has produced a packed, special issue on Lymphedema management that advances our knowledge in this important topic for oncologic physical therapists and cancer rehabilitation. In 1998 the American Cancer Society (ACS) released a supplement issue to the journal Cancer that highlighted the workshop proceedings from an international group of subject matter experts in lymphedema management. Dr. Stout states, “20 years after the ACS seminal report, the horizon for the future of lymphedema management is bright and includes exciting emerging science.

EDGE Annotated Bibliography
As a way to summarize the excellent work and outcomes of our many Oncology EDGE Task Forces, an annotated bibliography has been developed as a quick reference guide. The EDGE findings and recommendations are categorized by diagnosis and/or condition (when not diagnosis-specific). The goal is to promote the utilization of evidence-based outcome measures across settings in order to provide continuity in oncology rehabilitation.
The Oncology Section, APTA has several course offerings looking for partners to host. The host facility will be chosen based on the guarantee that they can draw a minimum of 20 registrants.
The Section's General Listerv is a very productive messaging system for answering your practice questions. In addition, we maintain specialized listservs for our special interest groups.
