Meet Aubrene, SACE item writer, and oncology rehab myth buster!
Aubrene Fiore PT, DPT, CLT-LANA, CWS, Board Certified Specialist in Oncologic Physical Therapy. She has presented at the state and national levels on topics related to wound care and oncology rehabilitation. She has served as associate teaching and lab facility for multiple physical therapy programs in Illinois and Florida. Aubrene also serves as a SACE item writer for the Academy of Oncologic PT.
Early in her education, Aubrene would have never considered she would be one day working in oncology rehab. An opportunity for treating patients with acute and chronic wounds lead her to obtain a certification in wound management. The missing piece to many of the chronic venous wounds was lymphedema management. After obtaining her lymphedema certification Aubrene began to work more heavily with the oncology population. She was mentored by Antoinette Sander and encouraged to work with more complicated cases and pursue teaching opportunities.
Her real experience came as a clinician working both IP and OP for Moffitt Cancer Center working with a variety of diagnoses. Aubrene loves to work in multiple practice areas and with a variety of diagnoses. She loves educating students on all the potential areas within physical therapy and loves to challenge cookie-cutter roles within physical therapy.
The common myth she loves to dispel is that working with people who have cancer is depressing and sad. The challenges we can help people overcome and return them to what makes them happiest is what keeps her passionate about oncology rehabilitation.
