Cancer Rehab: A Reality in Canada?
Thursday, September 20th 2018
1:00pm – 2:00pm ET
Statistics show that as of 2017, more than one million Canadians have survived cancer for more than 10 years. Yet, the physical rehabilitation needs of cancer survivors in Canada have received little attention and few services. Dr. Jennifer M. Jones, PhD, is a senior Scientist and Director of the Cancer Rehabilitation & Survivorship Program at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto.
Along with her colleague Stephanie Phan, Clinical Lead for the program, they provided an overview of her program, one of the best in the world and the only one of its kind in Canada. Canadian Cancer Survivor Network staff Allison MacAlister and Jaymee Maaghop joined in the conversation to discuss the current national landscape, and what CCSN is doing to raise awareness for cancer rehabilitation in Canada.
The webinar was followed by an interactive question and answer session.
