Using complementary therapies for cancer patients

This course is designed for complementary therapists wishing to further their knowledge of cancer and working appropriately with cancer patients.

It will increase therapists' confidence in working with cancer patients and adapting their therapies to meet their patients' needs.

There will be presentations on the patients' journey and therapists' experiences as well as case studies, group work, guidelines and practical demonstrations.
