Is rehabilitation really feasible in the palliative setting and why is it needed? - 22 June 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


Introducing the ENeRgy Trial- a randomised controlled trial of an Exercise and Nutritional Rehabilitation programme for people living with incurable cancer.

Dr Charlie Hall, St Columba's Hospice will present the scientific basis and rationale for a multi-modal rehabilitation programme designed for patients with incurable cancer. He will present the methodology, results and discuss the findings and wider implications of the ENeRgy trial, which formed the basis of his doctoral thesis. Could this research shape the way we deliver rehabilitative palliative care for people living with cancer in the future?
