Prehabilitation: Optimizing Patients to Improve Outcomes - Pt. 1

Webinar image with details
Overview

Prehabilitation is a multimodal strategy involving physical exercise as well as nutritional and psychosocial interventions aimed at improving fitness in the preoperative period. It is also used to improve and support patient tolerance and outcomes from treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy.

Join a multidisciplinary team of nursing and allied health professionals as they discuss how prehabilitation can be used to optimize thoracic oncology patients prior to treatment and support them throughout their journey. This is part one of a two-part series that aims to comprehensively present the key aspects of prehabilitation, including a scientific overview of benefits, organizing a program, physical conditioning and strengthening strategies prior to and during treatment, nutritional support, and psychological/motivational support.

These webinars aim to address not only the reasons why prehabilitation is pivotal to optimizing patient care and survivorship but the wider scope of its implementation in the thoracic oncology cancer pathway.
