This webinar will be interactive. Get ready to participate. After reviewing two complex case studies on cancer, the participants will help to determine the most effective assessments to perform, outcome measures to use and treatments to provide. It will be a fast-paced, fun, interactive session, that will leave you with new assessment and treatment options for your patients with cancer.

The case studies will be attached to the slide deck if you want to start brainstorming your plan.

Learning Objectives

  • Compare and contrast the Physiotherapy evaluations and treatments for clients diagnosed with cancer.
  • Distinguish the underlying principles of the various treatment modalities/activities to enhance function for the clients diagnosed with cancer.
  • As a group, work through two case studies.


This webinar is designed for health care professionals looking to discuss real patient situations. There needs to be a moderate baseline knowledge about cancer and its treatments.

WARNING: Some graphic images of real cases of cancer and complications will be shown. Advanced notice will be provided ahead of showing these slides so you can choose to look or not. Space is limited for this webinar since we will be taking live questions during the discussion and presentation. Reserve your seat now - you must be logged in to register.

We are going to limit registration to the first 200 participants to ensure we have time to discuss and interact with everyone who would like to join the conversation during the session. This webinar will be recorded and made available for free to all Embodia Members (subscribers).
