The Breast Oncology Program offered by Rebecca's follows The American Cancer Society's recommendation for rehabilitation intervention of the Prospective Surveillance Model of Health Care. This model is designed to detect and prevent potential side effects of breast cancer early in the patient's episode of care. Negative side effects of chemotherapy agents, radiation and surgery are routinely assessed and intervention is implemented as indicated before the patient develops a dysfunction. Our goal is to join the patient and healthcare team to maximize function, minimize negative side effects, preserve quality of life and increase survival rates.
