|Nicole L. Stout DPT, CLT-LANA, FAPTA
Dr. Nicole L. Stout is a research assistant professor in the School of Medicine, Department of Hematology/Oncology at West Virginia University Cancer Institute and with the School of Public Health, Department of Health Policy, Management, and Leadership. She also serves as the Associate Director of the WVU Cancer Institute’s Survivorship Program. Dr. Stout’s research focuses on the implementation of prospective, risk stratified functional assessment and symptom management strategies in cancer care delivery and studying community outreach and engagement strategies with rural primary care providers to enable community-based survivorship care. She is the co-chair of the Alliance Clinical Trials Network Rural Health Working Group, a steering committee member of the Appalachian Community Cancer Alliance, co-chair of the ASCO Survivorship Community of Practice, and serves on the board of directors for the West Virginia Oncology Society.
Dr. Stout is an internationally recognized expert and leader in the field of cancer rehabilitation and survivorship care. Her work and research have been foundational to developing the prospective surveillance model for morbidity management in cancer care. She has given over 300 professional lectures nationally and internationally, authored and co-authored over 100 peer-review and invited publications, several book chapters, and is the co-author of the book 100 Questions and Answers about Lymphedema. Dr. Stout is a senior editor with the Journal of Cancer Rehabilitation and serves as an associate editor with the Journal of Cancer Survivorship, and PM&R. She has led expert scientific consensus initiatives through the American Cancer Society, the World Health Organization, the National Institutes of Health and has received service and research awards from the US Department of Defense, The American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, and the American Physical Therapy Association.
She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania, a Master of Physical Therapy degree from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and her Doctor of Physical Therapy from MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston, Massachusetts. She also has a post-graduate certificate in Health Policy from The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health and completed a Health Policy Fellowship through the West Virginia University Science, Technology Policy and Leadership Initiative.

Dr Ciaran Fairman Ph.D., CSCS, CET
Ciaran is an assistant professor of Exercise Science and the Director of the Exercise Oncology Lab at the University of South Carolina.
Dr. Fairman’s primary research focus is examining the impact of exercise, nutrition and supplementation interventions during and after cancer treatments. The purpose of this research is to see if we can prevent or reduce the side effects experienced with cancer and its treatments. Specific research areas include the manipulation of dose, frequency, volume or intensity of exercise to optimize clinically relevant outcomes in cancer patients; resistance training across the cancer continuum; nutrition/supplementation to augment training adaptations; exercise medicine and tumor biology.
Dr. Fairman is also a strong advocate of the dissemination/translation of scientific research to a variety of audiences. He is the host of the REACH podcast (https://reach.fireside.fm/), where he discusses the latest research in exercise oncology.

Prehabilitation is a growing aspect of cancer rehabilitation and cancer care in general. While many models for prehabilitation focus on the time before cancer treatment as an opportunity to optimize aerobic capacity and strength through exercise protocols, there is far more that physiotherapists can introduce in a prehabilitation setting that will help individuals preparing for cancer treatments. Issues of comorbidity and existing impairments, education and preparation to manage treatment-related side effects, establishing baseline measures of function and performance can all be part of a prehabilitation protocol; it all depends on what your patients need and what your clinic can sustain.
Advances in detection and treatment of prostate cancer have resulted in a dramatic improvement in survivorship in the past couple of decades. Unfortunately, this means that there is an increasing number of men burdened by the persistence, long term side effects of treatment.
- Review evidence for pre-treatment baseline functional assessments that can contribute to a prehab and rehabilitation care plan.
- Discuss evidence-based education strategies that promote self management for patients preparing for cancer treatments.
- Identify components of a prehabilitation program that can be tailored based on the cancer disease type and patient needs
- Describe opportunities to include caregivers into the prehab intervention and care plan.
- To provide an overview of prostate cancer specific impairments and provide a rationale for exercise medicine
- The latest evidence in exercise oncology as it relates to the type/dose of exercise to optimize health in prostate cancer.
