Ep. 87 – Reclaiming Cancer Rehab’s Place at the Table with Nicole Stout, DPT, CLT-LANA, FAPTA

Rehab in general has seen remarkable shifts in the last few months, with oncology rehabilitation being pushed to the side & even shut down, as resources are redistributed to other patient population needs. But this leaves our oncology patient population in dire need – so how do we come back & recenter our patients at the core of what we do?

Nicole Stout, DPT, CLT-LANA, FAPTA, gives a bombshell interview that covers not only how we as a profession have backed ourselves into a corner, but also how we can emerge as an integral part of the cancer care continuum & key players at the oncology table.
