Professional Perk: The Role of Occupational Therapy in Cancer Care–ONLINE
Presenter: Alison Kirk, OTD-S
Date: February 9, 2024
Time: 8:45 – 10:00 am
Across all disciplines, supporting the needs of cancer survivors and their loved ones impacted by cancer is vital; however, one discipline often overlooked is occupational therapy. Occupational therapy is a discipline well suited to addressing this population’s needs through its unique focus on the individual, the environment, and their daily occupations. Occupational therapists empower individuals to improve their health and well-being by incorporating the things that are important in their daily life. In this program, participants will learn more about the field of occupational therapy, their contribution to a multidisciplinary team, and occupational therapists’ role in addressing common side effects during cancer.
