This is a 5 week course to enable patients to manage fatigue and breathlessness more effectively and regain a sense of control. Each week focuses on a different area of life such as energy levels, exercise, nutrition, sleep, breathing control and relaxation.
The course is run by a physiotherapist, occupational therapist and a nurse. The sessions last for two hours and are normally held on a Tuesday morning. Referrals are accepted for non-hospice patients with a palliative diagnosis.
