Prescribing Exercise for the Cancer Population
By: PESI, Inc

Course Description

Over 18 million cancer survivors live in the United States, and 2 million new cases are diagnosed yearly. Along with new medical treatments, exercise is critical in managing cancer and treatment side effects. In this course, participants will explore the profound impact of physical activity on cancer prevention, treatment, survivorship, and palliative care. Many healthcare professionals may underestimate exercise's importance in cancer care,failing to recommend or prescribe specific exercise programs as part of treatment strategies. This course aims to change this by educating clinicians and providers on evidence-based interventions and clinical applications of exercise, providing them with the tools to effectively integrate physical activity into their patients' care plans. By bridging this knowledge gap, healthcare professionals can help their patients enhance treatment outcomes, reducing treatment-related side effects and enhancing overall quality of life before, during, and after cancer treatment.
