Behind the Scenes: Planning the Ultimate Cancer Rehab Event

It’s official!  We are ONE MONTH away from The First-Ever Cancer Rehab Community Conference!

We’ve been busy planning this event for months, & now I’m finally taking you behind the scenes on why The Cancer Rehab Community Conference is going to be the best conference experience you’ve ever had.

The Cancer Rehab Community Conference: Needed Now More Than Ever

Cancer rehab is in crisis.  We have a rapidly booming oncology patient population & not enough competent clinicians to treat these patientsIt’s not that there aren’t any clinicians interested in treating these patients.  In fact, most cancer rehab sessions at conferences I’ve attended are pretty packed. The problem is that these conferences cover best-case scenarios using unlimited time & resources to treat textbook patients.  And this doesn’t look anything like the real world of cancer rehab.

This results in cancer survivors falling through the cracks every day.  You need a learning experience that takes the research & actually shows you how to apply it with your patients.   Hence The Cancer Rehab Community Conference – here’s how it’s different from every other rehab conference you’ve ever attended:

Real, clinician-test action tips from every session

Rather than the typical “here’s how it works in research, hope this helps,” you’ll receive strategic, actionable tips at the end of each session.  Each of our amazing speakers is a practicing clinician, who has walked the walk & talked the talk.  They know how challenging real-world practice can be, which is why we’re focusing so intently giving real action steps.

Think of these tips as your road map to start implementing Monday morning after the conference!

Won’t leave you high & dry after the conference ends

That high you get from attending a conference with rehab colleagues is one of my favorites.  But the sinking feeling on the ride home, knowing that you have to face the real world & its challenges alone is THE WORST.  So we’re softening the post-conference whiplash by not leaving you out in the cold by yourself.  With your ticket to The Cancer Rehab Community Conference, you’ll get instantaccess to our online community of supportive, encouraging rehab professionals called The Cancer Rehab Community.   In The Cancer Rehab Community, you’ll get access to other cancer rehab professionals’ expertise, resource sharing, support from your colleagues, networking opportunities, & more – all at your fingertips.  We know that if we’re going to truly change cancer rehab for the better, we can’t do it alone.  We need a united community to make this happen, which is why we believe so fervently in the power of ongoing community.  

Long, boring sessions NOT allowed

One of the worst parts of conferences is the endless droning of a boring speaker.  Even worse?  Endless droning for TWO HOURS.

That’s why at The Cancer Rehab Community Conference, sessions are short & power-packed.  No more boring two hour sessions.  Plus, you’ll get those action steps at the end of each session from our dynamic speakers.

Expensive hotels & travel time not required

The Cancer Rehab Community Conference is taking place virtually on Saturday, November 11, 2023. That means you can log in to the conference from your couch, with your dog snuggling at your side.  Talk about a win-win. But that doesn’t mean this conference is a passive experience you can tune out.  We’ll be hosting live Q&A sessions (which questions from you), giveaways, & more.  So don’t snooze on the networking, collaboration, & excitement!
