Current recommendations related to exercise and oncology clearly state that anyone with a cancer diagnosis should be meeting the recommendations for all adults in the U.S, yet the majority of individuals impacted by cancer (or their caregivers) fail to meet these guidelines at any point after a diagnosis. During this webinar you will learn about the latest guideline updates for individuals undergoing treatment as well as living with bone metastasis and hear from an author on how both of these guidelines were developed. On the implementation front, hear from a fellow CEP working in the oncology healthcare space on successful implementation strategies, communication with the oncology health care team, and ideas and strategies on how to create your place in this fast-growing field.
