Knowledge, Compassion, Practice, Results
APTA Oncology consists of professional physical therapists managing the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary and cardiopulmonary rehabilitative needs of patients who are living with and beyond cancer and other chronic illnesses such as HIV.
This special issue, guest edited by Min Huang, PT, PhD, provides valuable information into the impact of chemotherapy on balance by Wechsler and colleagues, the role of impaired executive function in physical mobility by Blackwood, et al., and significant insights into the experience of fear of falling during cancer survivorship by Covington. These are just a few of the important pieces in this issue.
Visit our Publications page for access to the special issue.
