- Brief summaryThe purpose of the present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a standardised multi-dimensional rehabilitation program for (ex-)patients with cancer on quality of life when compared to physical exercise and a waiting list control group.
After baseline testing, the multidisciplinary and physical rehabilitation group participate in the rehabilitation program for twelve weeks. Halfway and after completion of the rehabilitation program, baseline testing will be repeated.
To determine the long-term effectiveness of the rehabilitation, the questionnaires will be assessed three and nine month after the end of the rehabilitation program.
