  • Expand this model of supportive care across multiple domains, including but not limited to surgery, e.g. post cancer diagnosis, bone marrow transplant patients, frail patients,

B. Internal strategies that include;

  • Develop governance, oversight, standard operating procedures related to the day to day running of the prehabilitation centre,
  • Develop sustainable funding to establish a team of core clinical personnel for the centre (e.g. care coordinator, physiotherapist / exercise physiologist / clinical psychologist, nutritionist, other specialist medical etc.) to make these positions clinically relevant and sustainable beyond the three-year tenure
  • Develop and implement a program of research and research training that facilitates integration between research and clinical practice to improve patient outcomes
