MiOTA - Oncology SIS
The Oncology Special Interest Section
of the Michigan Occupational Therapy Association was developed to support occupational therapists working in the various realms of oncology practice. This section aims to provide therapists a support group for learning about occupational-based interventions for the oncology population, networking/sharing ideas, and gaining insight on the latest evidence-based interventions in cancer care.
The Oncology Special Interest Section will work in close collaboration with the Michigan Cancer Consortium (MCC) representative from MiOTA. The MCC is a statewide partnership of public and private organizations collaborating to improve cancer care in Michigan.Next Meeting
One (1) professional development unit (PDU) will be awarded to active MiOTA members in attendance. The certificate will be emailed to all attendees.
Guests are always welcome to see what MiOTA is about at the local level; however, after one “free visit” we request that you become a member in order to continue attending the chapter meetings. We hope that you like what you see and want to join. Membership link will be provided at meeting.
