This online course will be interactive. Get ready to participate. After reviewing two complex case studies on cancer, the participants will help to determine the most effective assessments to perform, outcome measures to use and treatments to provide. It will be a fast-paced, fun, interactive session, that will leave you with new assessment and treatment options for your patients with cancer.

The case studies will be attached to the slide deck if you want to start brainstorming your plan.

Learning Objectives

In this online course with Jodi Steele, we will:

  • Compare and contrast the Physiotherapy evaluations and treatments for clients diagnosed with cancer.
  • Distinguish the underlying principles of the various treatment modalities/activities to enhance function for the clients diagnosed with cancer.
  • As a group, work through two case studies.


This online course is designed for health care professionals looking to discuss real patient situations. There needs to be a moderate baseline knowledge about cancer and its treatments.

Jodi earned her kinesiology degree in 1997 and a physiotherapy degree in 1999 from McMaster University. In 2005, she founded Cancer Rehab Inc., a not-for-profit centre aimed at improving the lives of those living with cancer. Jodi recognized that individuals undergoing cancer treatments experience side effects such as lymphedema, fatigue, mobility issues and depression. Until 2009, the clinic provided exercise-based rehabilitation services that were previously unavailable in Canada.

In 2009, Jodi designed, developed and launched Wellspring’s Cancer Exercise Program. Wellspring’s program, similar to what was offered at Cancer Rehab Inc., is now accessed throughout southern Ontario at five locations. She continues to work with Wellspring Niagara as a program leader for in-person and online exercise classes. Jodi is also a professor at Niagara College, teaching in multiple programs: Fitness, PSW, OT/PT Assistant, Massage Therapy, and International Nursing.

Jodi first taught Rehab Techniques in Oncology in 2007, and in 2017, she began offering additional professional education courses online through Embodia, a digital healthcare platform.
