BENEFITS OF HOME-BASED REHABILITATION IN LUNG CANCER
Grant number: 1060484 | Funding period: 2014 - 2018
Lung cancer is the third leading cause of death in Australia. People with lung cancer experience a complex mix of symptoms that can provoke significant distress and impair physical function. This study aims to develop and test a home based exercise and self-management support program to increase function and physical activity levels, reduce levels of depression and improve quality of life of people with lung cancer.
