Prehabilitation and Rehabilitation for people living with cancer
The aim of this module is to develop specialist knowledge and skills to implement prehabilitation and rehabilitation interventions across the pathway to help patients living with cancer manage side effects from cancer treatments.
The module is designed to be a combination of online learning and three face to face days at the University.
E-learning sessions with content focussing on an in depth look at a different time of need/ stage in the cancer pathway (e.g., diagnosis/prehab, during & after treatment, palliative care)
A series of masterclasses are provided by key experts on aspects of:
- Personalised care and support
- Cancer prehabilitation
- Cancer rehabilitation and symptom management
- Consequences of treatments
- Service development and improvement
- You will be supported to understand and critically analyse the evidence and research that supports prehabilitation, rehabilitation and personalised care.
By the end of this module you will be able to;
- Critically appraise the evidence base for a range of prehabilitation and rehabilitation interventions for managing side effects from a variety of cancer treatments.
- Analyse and evaluate the factors and processes that facilitate effective collaboration within a multidisciplinary team, which encourages the creation, implementation and maintenance of prehabilitation and rehabilitation services.
- Critically appraise the service and the service environment through engaging with practice-based situations, identifying the relevance of contemporary policy drivers for the safe implementation of integrated service delivery of prehabilitation and rehabilitation interventions to manage treatment side effects.
- Use a variety of models, reflect upon your learning during this module and self-assess your knowledge, skills and attitudes, around implementing effective pathways for patients living with cancer accessing prehabilitation and rehabilitation services to minimise treatment side effects.
