Why would I take a CanRehab course?
There is convincing evidence that exercise and staying active can significantly enhance the quality of life of those affected by cancer at all stages of the cancer trajectory and may reduce / prevent some cancer treatment toxicities. This course has been designed to enable you to acquire and critically review the evidence and current practice whilst developing the skills to evaluate, risk assess, and provide safe effective and individualised exercise programmes specifically for the cancer population.
What does CanRehab Offer?
CanRehab Physiotherapy Course
This course is specifically adapted for all practising physiotherapists. It is delivered over two full days of online synchronous training. The agenda includes principles of exercise physiology and prescription and on successful completion of the assessment, candidates are awarded their CanRehab Certificate along with access to the supported CanRehab Physiotherapy Facebook support group
The need to stay up to date with the latest evidence on safety and guidelines in exercise oncology is important in this rapidly changing field. Thus, Revalidation for those students that have gained either their CanRehab Physiotherapy Certificate or their CanRehab Specialist Instructor qualification more than 3 years ago are advised to undertake this. Provided by an online course to be completed within 90 day of enrolment, it consists of learning modules and a summative MCQ exam .
Revalidation is also essential to be on the CanRehab Trust Register.
