Course Overview

Breast cancer treatment typically includes surgical intervention such as breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy) or mastectomy. Occupational therapy can provide pre-teaching and post-surgical intervention when working with people who have breast cancer. This course focuses on surgical interventions for breast cancer, the impact of surgery on occupational performance, key recovery issues, and potential complications after surgery.
