Webinar: The Ethics of Working with People with Cancer

Laura Allen

Our clients who are dealing with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses, as well as their caregivers, require that we pay special attention to not only our actual hands-on practice of oncology massage therapy, but also to our professional standards. Our Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice provide a safe healing environment for every client, but you’ll discover how vitally important this is when working with people who are in a fragile and compromised state of health.
