Medical aspects in oncological rehabilitation

Due to increasing numbers of cancer patients caused by both today's longer life expectancy and the drop in cancer mortality, the number of patients who have gone through cancer continuously increases. Such patients not only are often physically impaired and psychologically vulnerable but show also socio-economic adverse effects. Hence, efficient oncological rehabilitation is only possible when this complex situation is taken into account by approaching the following four aspects: (1) acceptance and handling of organic failures, (2) reassessment and lifestyle adjustments, (3) psychological stabilisation and (4) social and occupational reintegration. The current article gives a brief summary of the measures crucial for a successful oncological rehabilitation.
