The curriculum offers students understanding of the disease processes; various treatments currently being applied (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and immunotherapy), effects of cancer and treatment side-effects in terms of physical structure and function, development of other disease processes (e.g. metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, sarcopenia and osteoporosis), and the psychological impacts of the disease and treatments (e.g. anxiety, depression, fear of recurrence, self-care).
