Exercise program for patients with malignant pleural disease


Following a diagnosis of mesothelioma there can be declines in health and wellbeing. Many people experience weight loss, poor appetite, tiredness, shortness of breath,and pain. No research has examined how nutritional status (i.e., how well your diet is meeting your nutritional needs), physical functioning (e.g., ability to do tasks such as walking and lifting), and body composition (i.e., how much fat and muscle you have) changes over time for patients with mesothelioma. Participation in this study is anticipated to improve nutritional status, body composition, and physical functioning over time. Site available is Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.

Patients who may be eligible for this project can contact our team for further information on 6304 3444 or at emri@ecu.edu.au.
