Telehealth is an innovative way
to provide accessible support programs for Victorians living in rural and
regional areas, with great potential to improve outcomes for participants.
The new ‘Wellness and Life
after Cancer: an exercise and supportive care program’ will provide people who
have finished their active cancer treatment with two-hour education and
exercise sessions. Local health professionals will deliver the sessions at multiple
sites in the region.
This eight-week program
involves group exercise and education delivered in two-hour sessions. Education
sessions will be delivered at each site using video conferencing to link
participants together and provide support at a location closer to home.
Participants are provided with information, strategies and resources to support
their health and wellbeing.
The Cancer Council Victoria
program will empower participants to:
their fitness and strength
their ability to perform daily tasks
to adjust with life now
