This course is designed to explore intake concepts for the oncology client. Therapists will focus on developing and enriching their intake skills when cancer is part of the medical history. This lecture will guide therapists in navigating this process to reach the end goal of providing safe, effective and therapeutic treatment.

In this class we will learn how to review a medical record and identify relevant information. We will explore how to read lab and radiology reports and integrate those findings into treatment choices. We will identify the psychosocial issues that may present and concepts to support building rapport. Progress note charting will also be reviewed, highlighting the importance of documentation for the oncology patient.
