Oncological rehabilitation

Onco reva

A team of health professionals (physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, dieticians, ...) in collaboration with a physical medicine team attends to you during your rehabilitation and meets regularly to adjust your individualised treatment as you improve.

Numerous studies have shown that such programmes help you to:

  • Increase your endurance and improve your muscle strength
  • Reduce your fatigue and enhance your quality of life
  • Improve your social, familial and professional reintegration

This type of management is intended for all adult patients after or during cancer treatment. Patients are included after being medically assessed by a rehabilitation specialist and must be able to work as part of a group. 

The programme lasts approximately 3 months and is made up of 24 sessions of approximately 2 hours, focusing on cardiac and respiratory fitness and overall muscle strengthening. These group sessions (of 5 to 8 persons) are conducted as often as twice a week and are supervised by a physiotherapist.

The sessions are held at the Terranova location of Clinic Saint-Jean. The individual cost is limited to co-payment of the rehabilitation sessions. You can discuss this with your physician or referral nurse.
