#20 Cancer, Exercise & Quality of Life: Benefit Finding Through Cancer Rehabilitation

Phil's Camino Documentary Poster

Adverse effects of cancer and treatment can have devastating consequences on functional health and quality of life. Emerging research highlights the positive impact of exercise on functional health and QOL in the face of profound disability and reduced quality of life.

The first part of the presentation will overview evidence that supports links between compromised functional health, mortality and reduced quality of life. The second part of the presentation highlights the role of multidisciplinary, collaborative care in addressing common cancer and treatment-related impairments, and outlines incremental levels of specialization and resource intensity necessary to meet patient rehabilitation needs.

 

PHIL'S CAMINO

The presentation concludes with a private showing of "Phil's Camino", an award-winning documentary about a stage IV colon cancer patient who, with the support of his cancer rehabilitation and oncology teams, is able to adopt a positive approach to his disease and ongoing need for palliative chemotherapy.  Exercise becomes the corner stone of improving his functional health.

Inspired, he replicates the legendary Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail — in his own backyard. His fitness improves, his disease goes into remission and he is given a “chemo holiday,” allowing him to fly to Spain and walk the actual El Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile pilgrimage, while on palliative chemotherapy. Along the way he realizes his true pilgrimage is the one he travels within.

This is an inspiring story and points to the positive role that cancer rehabilitation can play in improving functional health and quality of life for patients living with cancer. See brief Trailers below!

Many cancer survivors experience a changed sense of self that impacts their experience of purpose in life, psychological well-being and functional health. David Zucker, MD, PhD and Mary Radomski, PhD, OTR/L invite you to stay and join an informal conversation, immediately following the symposium, to explore cancer rehabilitation’s role  in addressing the existential issues experienced by cancer survivors through enhancing functional health.

#843 Re-Imagining Rehabilitation Care and Research at AbilityLab: The Future of RIC

TUE, 1 NOV // 1:00 PM – 4:30

Participants will independently commute to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at 345 E Superior Street (2 miles from the Hilton) to learn about a new approach to clinical research and patient care that informed the design of the new research hospital, AbilityLab, scheduled to open in March 2017. By literally breaking down the walls between science and clinical care, RIC is making a $550 million investment to change the way research is conducted, accelerate clinical breakthroughs, and improve patient outcomes.

Hear directly from the researchers and clinicians who built this advanced knowledge translation concept over the past 7 years, and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Joanne C. Smith, who will discuss how these innovations are being adopted in the new hospital. Participants will have the opportunity to tour the AbilityLab prototype on the 9th floor of RIC.
