This essential webinar series explores the impact of current cancer research, therapies and treatments within the oncology continuum, and the emergence of cancer rehabilitation as a specialty area of practice within rehabilitative medicine. Rehabilitation services play a vital role in adding value to the medical continuum of oncology care. Integrating rehabilitation services within the continuum of care allows providers the opportunity to employ an interdisciplinary approach to address critical components of function that are often overlooked or undertreated.
The enhanced role of rehabilitation services within the continuum of oncology care will further challenge the long-established parameters of service setting, modeling, and delivery. These innovations will require providers to think strategically and systemically in order to meet the complex needs of individuals with cancer through person-centered care. This webinar series prepares providers to meet these challenges with keen guidance and insight on how to effectively plan and integrate specialized rehabilitation services into the continuum of care in order to promote optimal outcomes for individuals and enhance service efficacy and efficiency.
Designed to benefit direct service professionals and administrators, the Meeting the Challenge webinar series provides participants with the latest research and analysis of integrated therapies and treatments, clinical practice guidelines, policy drivers and implications, development of comprehensive care models, population dynamics, and the effect of specialized rehabilitation services within the continuum of care. Specific topics include:
- Epidemiology of cancer and its emerging relevance to rehabilitation practice.
- Regulatory environment impacting the delivery of rehabilitation care and services.

Cancer Rehabilitation: Policy and Regulatory Drivers in the United States
Cancer is a prevalent condition in the population of the United States. The medical continuum for cancer care delivery is highly regulated and driven by comprehensive approaches to standardized care. Currently, there are a number of regulatory and policy drivers in the United States that are emphasizing value-added services that contribute to comprehensive, high-quality care for individuals with cancer. Rehabilitation care providers have a significant role to play in provision of care that meets emerging policy and accreditation standards. This webinar will review important cancer-related policy reports from the Institute of Medicine and will highlight their relevance to rehabilitation care. Focus will be drawn to demonstrate how a cancer rehabilitation program can contribute to enabling compliance with many of the accrediting standards and efforts made to demonstrate the alignment of rehabilitation services with these policy drivers for comprehensive care delivery.
