Exercise Training: A Key Strategy in Oncology Rehabilitation​​
Rehabilitation Oncology seeks high quality papers related to the use of exercise in oncology rehabilitation for the 2024 special issue of the journal. In continuing to serve our mission to further the science and practice of cancer rehabilitation, we are seeking manuscripts that report on the use of prescribed exercise to minimize impairments and improve functional outcomes for individuals with cancer across the survivorship continuum.

This spring brings readers an issue that has several important pieces regarding disparities in cancer rehabilitation, including a poignant letter to the editor from Miriam Dameron-Thompson about her personal cancer care journey as an educated individual of color who experienced challenges along her path.  The piece by Mallory Mark and colleagues highlights the need for clinicians to take responsibility for gaining a greater understanding of health disparities, including our own understandings of being in a position of unearned advantage as well as the social structures that play a role in access to care.  This Commentary was featured on a “Meet the Authors" event sponsored by Rehabilitation Oncology, and will be available as a podcast at a later date.

In addition to the highlighted pieces above, the issue OncoReads selection is a piece about cancer pain management among the elderly (McLarney, et al.), and the issue Podcast features a discussion with authors Jill Mayer and Kayleigh Plumeau about their research of the impact of weekly telephone calls on home exercise adherence.  Both the OncoReads and Podcast are available on the Rehabilitation Oncology website,​
