This course is designed to introduce and discuss the impact of pharmacology on massage treatment planning. It will focus on differences in cancer biology, drug classifications, and associated side effects. The lecture will explore anti-cancer therapies and the potential adverse events associated with them. Case studies will be integrated throughout the lecture.
The hands-on portion of the class will involve developing and enriching therapists’ intake skills regarding pharmacological considerations, including scheduling, treatment focus, and duration, as well as protocol implications. Case studies from the lecture will be used for hands-on practice.
Therapists will be provided with the opportunity to strategically plan effective, safe, and therapeutic treatments.
