Abstract

On completion of acute medical treatment oncological rehabilitation serves the purpose of re-integrating the patient into the everyday situation, family and working life, while at the same time improving his/her quality of life. The aims of outpatient or inpatient rehabilitation are based on an individual analysis of both physical and psychosocial problems and are implemented within the framework of an interdisciplinary therapeutic program. Not the least of the positive effects of rehabilitation is the saving of costs achieved by shortening the patient's time in hospital and reducing the number of working days lost.
