Pancare’s Living Well Series, Exercise and upper GI cancer – the importance of keeping active.

Start Date:23/02/2021

Start Time:1:00 PM AEDT

Duration:60 minutes


In this informative webinar, Dale Ischia, Accredited Exercise Physiologist will explore the importance of exercise and keeping active, for people living with upper GI cancer. The side effects of surgery and treatment can place additional strain on the body, often leading to fatigue, decline in function, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. Exercise can help improve the efficacy and tolerance of treatment and minimise side effects, leading to improved quality of life. 

Dale will share her expert knowledge to help you live a more active life, covering topics such as:
  • Why is exercise so important?
  • Learn what kind of exercise may be best for you
  • Explore the benefits of exercise after surgery and during treatment
  • Discuss factors to consider when starting an exercise program
The session will also allow plenty of time to have your questions answered.
