The clinical oncologist of our clinic carries out complex rehabilitation, aftercare and cancer prevention for tumourous patients in the Onco-Rehabilitation Centre of our outpatient clinic in Pest.
During the onco-rehabilitation process, the oncologist
- is exceptionally attentive to the patient,
- devotes appropriate time to him/her,
- assists, coordinates the treatment process, develops and prepares therapies that maintain the quality of life,
- makes individualized recommendations to reduce the long-term effects of anti-tumour treatment,
- assesses the chances of recurrence and the formation of metastases of the disease and makes recommendations for their detection and prevention,
- may be consulted with symptoms of side effects or complications during the treatment carried out according to the protocol,
- may be asked if mobility difficulties, fatigue, pain or weakness occur during the treatment,
- may be consulted if it becomes more difficult to carry out daily activities,
- may be interviewed if it is more difficult to think clearly,
- helps the patient to maintain and regain both psychological/mental and physical fitness, and to make everyday life easier.
Onco-rehabilitation is the process of helping patients to achieve and maintain their maximum physical, social, psychological/spiritual, occupational abilities and well-being by reducing the damage caused by the tumour and the cancer treatment. Therefore, it is extremely important that the so-called pre-rehabilitation process be started after the diagnosis, even before the necessary oncological treatments, where the psychological and physical preparation of the patient takes place.
In Hungary, this type of care is still available elsewhere in a limited way and is complexly missing from public care, however international experience highlights the beneficial effects of onco-rehabilitation and the need for it.
The basic aim of onco-rehabilitation is:
– to detect, prevent, screen, reduce/minimize the chances of recurrence or metastasis (second tumour),
– to monitor the long-term effects of the tumour (physical, immunological, psychosocial effects),
– to prevent and manage the long-term effects of anti-tumour treatment.
Our oncologist and onco-rehabilitation specialist is Dr Tamás Martin.
