Abstract

Cancer rehabilitation is a practical attempt to maximize independence and dignity and to reduce the extent to which cancer interferes with an individual's physical, psychosocial, and economic functioning. The rehabilitation process should begin at the time of diagnosis or definitive medical intervention and should continue until the individual is able to maintain the desirable level of independence.
