This guide has been written by specialist cancer physiotherapists to support colleagues working in non-cancer specific roles.
Do you feel concerned when your patient also has a cancer diagnosis? Are you unsure of what to do and what not to do?
It will help you feel more confident when treating someone with a current or past history of cancer and it lets you know what issues to look out for.
The guide is split into four sections:
- Understanding cancer
- Managing side effects, symptoms and conditions
- Promoting physical activity
- Red flags
It signposts you to lots of useful resources and it will help you treat people holistically, as well as know when to refer to a specialist.
