Course Description

This fully taught interactive two day programme provides the participants with confidence that they understand Breast Cancer, its causes, its presentation, the way it is treated and the way the body is reconstructed after treatment.    The knowledge learned together with assessment protocols and the exercise database and Programming criteria provide the basis for safe effective exercise support for the Breast Cancer survivor, from diagnosis to treatment, recovery, prevention of lymphedema and proper exercise guidelines and protocols.

 

This course is open to Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Pilates Instructors, Personal Trainers with a GP referral or clinical qualification, lymphedema treatment specialists, and nurses.

 

Evidence based practice and integration of material from the theory and applied as functional exercise for rehabilitation is the emphasis of the practical sessions.

At the end of this course :

You will be equipped with a toolbox that will be suitable for either group work (as favoured by charity funded schemes running in many UK hospitals)  or for one on one work with clients preferring individual attention.

You  will sufficiently understand Breast Cancer, its etiology and stages / types of treatment to be able to intelligently interact with your client(s) and set realistic expectations of how and when you can help them.

You will understand the value of meeting your clients pre-surgery and taking relevent measurements of the client's pre surgery range of movement, and anthropometric measurements - which will form the basis of your post rehab measurement and evaluation and also help you to set realistic goals.

You will understand the surgical effects of different types of reconstruction or surgery and this will allow you to hone in on muscle groups which will require attention and contraindicated exercises or movement patterns which should be avoided as a result of any specific intervention.

You will understand the client's 'journey' from removal of tumour, through reconstruction, if any, and adjuvent therapies such as Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, Hormone Therapies etc.  You will therefore understatnd the need to accommodate the psychological as well as physiological side effects of the treatments allowing you to set expectations appropriately and support your client through the stages.

You will be aware of the importance to know which of your clients is at greatest risk of co-morbitities such as Lymphodema and understand the signs and symptoms and be able to advise accordingly.

You will be able to deliver graded, appropriate and safe exercise Programmes which will not only help clients to recover Range of Movement, Mobility and Strength compromised by the surgical interventions, but also develop a client base loyal to you who by attending regular exercise will statistically live longer and have less chance of reccurrence of Breast Cancer than those who do not.
