Education is an important component of oncology rehabilitation programs that is highly valued by attendees. The learning needs and preferred format for delivery of educational content will invariably vary between individuals, rendering it difficult to prescribe a ‘one size fits all’ structure. Education may be delivered via a formal format such as a group facilitated discussion, delivery of a presentation or web- or paper-based information sources. It will also likely occur informally via discussions with exercise facilitators, peer attendees, family and healthcare professionals.
