Cancer and its treatment are known to cause survivors to experience a number of comorbidities and adverse effects. Because physical therapy management of the cancer survivor must either focus on these comorbidities/adverse effects or treat them, physical therapists must have a fundamental understanding of the most common of conditions. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
