    Ep. 61 - PTs can help prevent too!

    Ep. 61 - PTs can help prevent too!

    February is National Cancer Prevention Month, & while we as PTs may not think of ourselves in a cancer prevention role, we have great opportunities to educate our patients & empower them to take control of their health. This episode is for every PT professional & student.

    Just because a patient has one comorbidity, impairment or diagnosis doesn't exclude them from being at risk of developing cancer. Just because a patient has one cancer diagnosis doesn't exclude them from being at risk for another.

    Ep. 60 - LANA Exam Debrief with Priscilla Santiago-Maldonado

    Ep. 60 - LANA Exam Debrief with Priscilla Santiago-Maldonado

    This past year, I sat for the LANA-Certified Lymphedema Therapist Exam. For me, I wanted to take the exam so I could advance my lymphedema knowledge & practice. As I was preparing for it, I was getting way too bogged down in the details of each section that I thought could possibly be pertinent for the exam. Frustrated, I turned to one of the lymphedema therapist Facebook group for some encouragement. Boy, am I glad I did that: Priscilla Santiago-Maldonado totally changed my exam preparation!

    Ovarian cancer is the most deadly gynecological cancer for women in the Western Hemisphere. While relatively rare, we will still encounter these patients & need to be aware of the disease process, how treatment affects our patients, & how we can help these patients before, during, & after treatment, & even before diagnosis.

    Ep. 58 - The Essentials of an OncoPT Lymphedema Clinic

    Ep. 58 - The Essentials of an OncoPT Lymphedema Clinic

    Last week, I covered my favorite must-haves for a general oncology clinic. Today's episode covers my favorite, essential items for an onco-lymphedema clinic. The idea with these two episodes is to pare down all the excess "toys" & "gadgets that tend to clutter our clinics - or to give those starting a clinic an idea of what they really need at the heart of all the "stuff."

    Ep. 57 - The Essentials of an OncoPT Clinic

    Ep. 57 - The Essentials of an OncoPT Clinic

    It's a fact a clinic needs certain things to run. Sometimes we can get caught up in the flash of new equipment & feel like we need all kinds of things to make our clinic go. However, we really don't need all that stuff to have a successful OncoPT clinic that serves our patients effectively. If you or your clinic are newer to oncology & don't know if you have what it takes to be effective, this episode is just for you!
