Managing Referrals

Understand who may participate in Cancer Rehabilitation and how to involve them in your program.

Who can attend an Oncology Rehabilitation Program?

  • Anyone with a primary diagnosis of cancer
  • People who want to improve their level of functioning, such as those who struggle with cancer related fatigue and deconditioning
  • People who are alert and can follow exercise instructions
  • People who are medically fit to participate in exercise

Patients who have a significant cognitive impairment, unstable cardiovascular disease, significant musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory or neurological condition that prevents exercise may not be appropriate to participate (for further information see Safety and Screening)
