Overview:

Join the Canadian Physiotherapy Association for this presentation about the Development of an Evidence-Based Educational Resource in Oncology:  'Living Safely with Bone Metastases'.

Currently, 44 million people worldwide are living with cancer, of whom 30-80% will experience metastatic bone metastases (MBD) which may lead to significant pain, loss of function, decreased activity participation, and increased risk of pathological fractures.

While physical activity is often perceived to be contraindicated in the presence of bone metastases, the literature suggests that safe adoption of physical activity, as well as targeted exercise interventions, have the potential to improve overall bone health. Despite a growing body of evidence on the benefits of physical activity in patients with bone metastases, there are limited information resources or guidelines on safe movement and activity practices.

The development of ‘Living Safely with Bone Metastases’ contributes to innovation in healthcare by providing an accessible online resource for patients and healthcare professionals, to educate and support individuals living with bone metastases. As bone metastasis is a frequent site of cancer spread, this booklet fills an important gap in care for the many cancer patients living with advanced disease.

By providing clear guidelines on safe movement and exercise, this booklet provides a basis for discussion between healthcare professionals and patients in the education and counselling process. Additionally, it serves as a practical reference to promote ongoing disease management, maximize functional mobility, and optimize quality of life. 

 

Course Objectives:

  1. To develop an understanding of the pathophysiology of bone metastases
  2. To develop an understanding of the symptoms of bone metastases and it's impact on patients, including secondary complications
  3. To learn how to educate patients with bone metastases on minimizing fractures via an evidence-based educational resource tool
  4. To learn how to enhance clinical care for patients with bone metastases
  5. To develop the knowledge of adaptation strategies to improve quality of life in patients living with bone metastases
  6. To gain a better understanding of how exercise is used to treat those with bone metastases
