As a Clinical Specialist in Oncology, I believe I should share my knowledge with cancer survivors, their families, and with other health-care providers (including physiotherapists of course).
To accomplish this, I have teamed up with a couple colleagues to create the Canadian Cancer Rehabilitation and Education Institute. Through this partnership we are able to share our knowledge and experience with others.
Below is a sample of events for cancer survivors and health-care providers where I presented (note that I have used the initials of others who I presented with and did not have a chance to allow me to post their names on my web site).
