3. Adapting a Restorative Program
In this chapter, the learner will be able to apply knowledge of cancer, cancer treatment, and common side effects to develop a restorative program that is tailored to the individual needs of adult cancer survivors. We'll review how certain chemotherapeutic agents may influence balance, strength, cardiopulmonary function, and how to adapt a program for that patient. Identify reasonable restorative goals within the cancer survivor's ability, and develop a plan for initiating a restorative exercise program. We'll wrap up our course with a question and answer session.
