Working with Levine Cancer Institute, Carolinas Rehabilitation can help coordinate both oncological and rehabilitation services with minimal disruptions to our patient's care schedule.
Once referred for rehabilitation, the patient will be assigned to our cancer rehabilitation team, which is led by a cancer-specialized physical medicine and rehabilitation physician.
This physician will work with all other rehabilitation professionals to design the best course of treatment for each patient. In addition to the physician, the dedicated team includes physical, occupational or speech therapists, rehabilitation nurses, clinical care managers and other clinicians.
The cancer rehabilitation team participates in regular educational activities with specific focus on cancer rehabilitation topics and actively pursues research to further functional outcomes. This patient-focused team uses innovative techniques with clearly established rehabilitation protocols to provide the best quality of care for patients.
