FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Who is this course for?
This course was designed for rehabilitation practitioners (physical & occupational therapists) in mind. Many massage therapists specializing in cancer care are very pleased with the integration of this course into their practice. Exercise physiologists and athletic trainers who focus on working with people who have/had breast cancer will also benefit from this course.
I invite all oncology team members including physicians, nurse navigators, nutritionists, etc. to take this comprehensive course. It provides a framework for care during and after treatment to prevent and alleviate side effects that restrict quality of life. When we all come together for the same purpose (improving breast cancer survivorship) our collaboration provides the opportunity to understand each field's unique perspective, improve communication, and advance standards of care for people with breast cancer.
When does the course start and finish? What is the time commitment?
This course is offered quarterly (Q1: Jan-March / Q2: April-June / Q3: July-Sept. / Q4: Oct.-Dec.). Each cohort has 3 months to complete coursework (16 hours), short tests in each module (12-20 questions), and a personal project for KickPink certification. One module with 3-4 lectures will be delivered each week the first month. Your personal contribution to the group is up to you; it could take 1 hour to do a literature review, or could be more intentional delving into a topic of personal interest. You do not get a 'grade' for this, but we in the KickPink community support and learn from one another; this is a moment to share your skills and insights with the group to help us grow collectively. We understand everyone has different schedules and commitments which is why we offer 3 months for completion of certification.
Is this course interactive or self-study?
Both! This course is delivered quarterly to a small cohort of practitioners. Registration is capped at 50 to allow for personalized attention. You can submit questions to the instructor and which will be answered every Monday in the KickPink community page. Everyone in your cohort will be moving through the material at a similar pace with you over the month which will facilitate group conversation. A final 'personal contribution' is required to submit to the group for certification. You are free to choose the topic of self-study and sharing. Once you are enrolled in the course, feel free to browse past 'personal contributions' to stoke your interests. You can email your topic idea or final contribution for assistance.
