Clinical Practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP, implementation science, program development)
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common toxicity of pediatric cancer treatment. Learn to identify those most at risk, assess CIPN and related functional impairments, and implement physical and occupational therapy interventions that target CIPN-related impairments. The development and implementation of a prospective surveillance model for CIPN and functional impairments within an oncology clinic will be discussed. Case studies will be presented for group discussion. This presentation is most appropriate for physicians, nurses, PTs, PTAs, OTs, and OTAs.
