Patients who undergo treatment for cancer often become deconditioned. The RECON program (Neurological REhabilitation with CONcurrent radiation/TMZ for glioma) offers neurological rehabilitation while providing simultaneous oncological treatment.
This collocation facilitates effective rehabilitation, helping people minimise the deconditioning that often occurs during radiation and chemotherapy treatment.
It aims to maximise a person’s physical and cognitive independence, in preparation for resumption of normal life following treatment.
- Epworth Geelong also offers an eight week, multidisciplinary outpatient oncology rehabilitation program. This program has been designed for anyone who has been diagnosed with any form of cancer, regardless of whether they are preparing for treatment, undergoing treatment or have completed treatment.
