About this Issue

This fall issue highlights the continued excellence in evidence for practice in our field.  You will find:  

The accepted abstracts titles and authors for the Oncology Section platforms and posters at Combined Sections Meeting during February of 2017 in San Antonio, TX with complete abstracts on the journal webpage. The Clinical Conversation column is the first submission to this column from the HIV SIG. The Research Round-up column highlights the EDGE Task Force work - systematic reviews on clinical outcomes measures in oncology physical therapy, and provides the revised EDGE Rating Scale that will be used going forward

The three original research reports in this issue are entitled "Scapulothoracic and Glenohumeral Motion during Functional Reaching Tasks in Women with a History of Breast Cancer and Healthy Age-Matched Controls", "Validation of two submaximal cardiorespiratory fitness tests in patients with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy" and "The Effect of Bone-loading Exercise on Bone Mineral Density in Women Following Treatment for Breast Cancer:  A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis" to add to evidence for practice in oncology physical therapy and breast cancer rehabilitation in the peer reviewed literature. 

Lastly, if you are interested in pediatric oncology physical therapy, look for the next issue in February of 2017, a special issue focused on pediatric oncology physical therapy.
