Training for health professionals in breast cancer rehab
About Denise Stewart
Denise Stewart is an Occupational Therapist trained in Australia at the University of Queensland. Her career started at a major public hospital, providing rehabilitation to people with very serious and chronic illnesses and injuries.
With the introduction of workplace rehabilitation in the 80s, Denise moved into the private health sector and helped injured workers return to work. This experience created a passion for workplace injury prevention and the importance of good return to work programs.
This same concern for a person's recovery and the importance of returning to work was applied to her work with women after breast cancer. For 25 years, Denise has been a leader in developing improved rehabilitation services for this special client group.
Empowering people to take control of their health and wellbeing has been the driving force for her latest work in developing educational resources for clients including a Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Youtube Channel. Knowledge is shared about common physical issues experienced by women after breast cancer.
Online breast cancer rehabilitation service delivery has also been developed so women in areas that lack access to health professionals trained in post-breast cancer care, can still obtain the help they may need to recover well.
Denise has launched several innovative projects in breast cancer rehabilitation:
Share Cording Protocols Project (launched in 2014) for health professionals
Youtube educational videos for breast cancer survivors
Online International Mastectomy Scar assessment survey
Online training modules in Breast Cancer Rehabilitation
Online International Breast Cancer Summit (December 2016- 2020) for health professionals

I found Denise on YouTube and she described exactly what I was suffering after my mastectomy in 1996 and my recurrence in 2009.
I emailed her and sent some selfies.
We set up a consultation on Zoom (like Skype) after figuring out the international time differences.....
From there on it was all go.
