FHT Accredited Course
Over the past 15 years and following publication of the NICE guidelines for Supportive and Palliative Care (2004), the use of Complementary Therapy is being used more widely in the treatment of patients with cancer
A pre-requisite to the course is a Complementary Therapy qualification in one or all of the following:-
The development of the ‘Fundamentals in Complementary Therapies in Cancer Care’ course has been developed for qualified Complementary Therapists who wish to further their knowledge, enhance their skills and develop their practice in Oncology, to ensure relevant and effective treatments which have been risk assessed and are therefore not contra-indicated and are safe.
On completion of most Complementary Therapy courses, qualified practitioners have insufficient knowledge and skills within the oncology clinical setting. As a result, people with cancer are often denied treatments or treated inappropriately and potentially unsafely in many settings
In the pre-registration educational setting, students are often advised that cancer is a contraindication to many treatment interventions. Students and many therapists, therefore, are unqualified and under skilled in treating cancer patients in any setting
Having spent 14 years in Oncology within the NHS and private sector Angela Green of Angela Green Complementary Therapies and Education has developed knowledge, skills and expertise in the treatment of patients, at all stages of their cancer journey, from diagnosis, though treatment and rehabilitation, to survivorship or end of life
