|Thu||Oct 24, 2019||9am – 5pm|
Take the fear away and safely treat people diagnosed with cancer!
We are super thrilled to launch our Oncology Certification Program for you, the Health Care Providers.
First, find out if this modality is for you, with signing up to this one day course, Fundamentals of Oncology. Then, coming in 2020, is our Part 2, 3-day Oncology class to complete this certification.
Our Fundamentals of Oncology course is designed to take the fear and misunderstanding out of providing soft tissue manipulations to individuals who have had a cancer diagnosis or are actively affected by cancer. Fundamentals of Oncology offers a service for the fast-growing need to train health care providers to provide clients with ongoing and post-treatment soft-tissue care. This path will give you the foundation to support oncology patients and cancer survivors through hands-on support confidently.
What you accomplish and acquire from taking this course?
You will become confident in knowing more about what precautions and adaptations are required to carry out a safe treatment and when to refer out cancer patients.
Learn the enhanced knowledge of common oncology terminology, oncology treatment protocols, and side effects to enable effective communication with clients and other health care professionals.
A way to explain to patients and colleagues the research-based benefits of oncology soft-tissue manipulations (and what claims we can not make).
A list of educational and service-based resources for both you and your cancer diagnosed patients.
Who should take this course?
All health care providers who work directly with oncology patients are welcome to take this course.
2nd Year Massage Therapy students who have completed Pathology are welcome.
I wanted to take Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage with Seminars for Health to become more confident in treating pregnant and postpartum women as my college didn’t touch on this at all. I honestly feel that a lot of therapist leave school scared and too nervous to treat pregnant and postpartum women. I actively avoided it. Janine does a great job of dispelling the misinformation that’s out there regarding pregnancy and massage. Her knowledge and experience is vast and fills you with confidence. She showed some great techniques and made sure everyone was super confident with the sidelying positioning, draping and bolstering. The booklet we used and took home is great and really useful. I’ve been taking it with me when I have a maternity or postpartum massage just for reference. It gives you all of the contraindications and cautions to watch out for broken down into trimester as well as safe positioning and techniques to use for each trimester. All in all I feel 100 times more confident since taking the course and I feel like clients feel more cofident in you when you know the right questions to ask and understand the issues facing pregnant and postpartum women. I would highly recommend this course to all therapists! Pregnant women aren’t scary and they need massage and support more than anyone.
