Intro to Oncology & Massage

August 11 @9:00 am -1:00 pm

$100

Lecture Only Class | 4 CEUs
With instructor Debbie Romano

Course Description
This course introduces students to the basics about cancer, the symptoms, causes, and current treatment options. The discussion will include preventable causes of cancer and how we can boost our bodies’ own natural defenses against cancer. In this class, students will learn the contraindications of oncology massage, as well as existing legal issues and how to approach this sensitive topic. A comprehensive intake form for a client with cancer will be carefully reviewed and incorporated in this course. Students will learn and practice communication skills with oncology clients and their healthcare providers. By the completion of this course, students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of cancer and feel confident performing general massage on a client with cancer.


Course Objectives

  1. Students will list and define the 4 classifications of cancer, and how it is graded, staged, and the 4 common treatments.
  2. Students will define 3 contraindications for oncology massage.
  3. Students will explain the difference in an intake form with legal disclaimer for general (non-oncology) massage clients versus an intake form for a client with cancer.
  4. Students will demonstrate proper communication skills with oncology clients and their healthcare providers.
