Infusion Center Massage 101

This ICM 101 program will help you understand what you need to know to work as a team member in a hospital-based infusion center massage program and provide hand/foot massage for patients while they receive their cancer treatment.

Working in an infusion center setting is a very fulfilling career pathway. It is also an effective gateway to building practice-based patient care hours for therapists who may want to transition into working with inpatient populations.
