Next Friday, June 17, Cancer and Careers is excited to host our 6th annual National Conference on Work & Cancer, in New York City. While recent blog posts have focused on some of the new topics we’re introducing this year, we also have returning sessions that we are excited to present! One, in particular, is a session titled Occupational Therapy/Vocational Rehab: Improving Your Work Ability.
Dorra Blacker, Clinical Supervisor of Vocational Rehab at Rusk Rehab at NYU Langone, and Gabrielle Miskovitz, Clinical Specialist for Outpatient Occupational Therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, will be joining us to talk about services that can support the transition of returning to work during and after cancer treatment. With a focus on how to enhance the performance of daily tasks associated with your job, our presenters will share OT strategies aimed at improving functioning, both physically and cognitively, as well as vocational rehabilitation services intended to help increase work ability.
