Pediatric Oncology Special Interest Group (SIG)

SIG Chair: Susan Miale, PT, DPT, PCS    Open To: Members Only66 Current Members

Pediatric oncology is a growing field within the physical therapy profession. Children who are treated for cancer are at risk for impairments of all body systems directly related to their cancer diagnosis and treatment. Physical therapists have an important role in identifying impairments and providing evidence-based assessments and interventions to improve a child's motor skills, cardiovascular endurance, and activity participation. Given the emerging nature and importance of the pediatric oncology rehabilitation field, the pediatric oncology SIG will facilitate collaboration of physical therapists and healthcare practitioners, both clinically and through research, in order to better provide evidence-based services to children with cancer around the world.
