This July 2021 issue of Rehabilitation Oncology covers important emerging practice trends ranging from the use of telehealth to increase physical activity among those with cancer to health promotion and wellness in oncologic physical therapy.  As we move toward resuming practice in ways similar to what was done prior to the pandemic, we can also take the lessons learned from the pandemic to make cancer rehabilitation more accessible.  This issue also features several original research studies focused on function – from the use of patient-reported outcome tools and performance-based measures of function, to shoulder function among those treated for breast cancer. Be sure to check out the full issue on-line as several articles are featured online-only.​
