The Language of Healing: Navigating Oncology Terminology

Thursday 16 November 2023
Around 43% of Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 85, making it the leading cause of death in Australia. As Occupational Therapists, we are increasingly working with people who have cancer as their primary diagnosis or in addition to other disabilities.
