Services for Cooperating Institutions

The interaction between the network members plays a vital role in the OnokoAktiv network. The experience brought along by each of the cooperating institutions promotes an intensive exchange. Further training programs addressing special topics and problems, as well as specific professional lectures, provide an opportunity for catching up on the latest scientific insights and for discussing practice-related issues. Selected information media are to help in providing information on sports therapeutic issues in oncology. A further step would consist of creating a platform for communication between patients, the medical field and caregivers. OnkoAktiv is working towards the centralized referral of patients by oncologic treatment and rehabilitation facilities to the network, addressing specific issues on the topic "physical activity, exercise and cancer".

Range of services for training and therapy institutions

  • Biannual network meetings for the exchange of information and for continuing education
  • Putting patients in touch with training and therapy institutions
  • Awarding a seal of quality/logo OnkoAktiv (only quality-controlled training and therapy institutions)

In addition, the OnkoAktiv network offers continuing education courses on the topic of "physical activity, exercise and cancer" for interested persons that do not belong to the network. Please contact us for further information!

Service for OnkoAktiv Center

OnkoAktiv supports its OnkoAktiv Centers in terms of network experiences and supports them in establishing an own network to refer cancer patient to quality checked training facilities close to their homes. Furthermore, OnkoAktiv promotes the exchange among different players in sports and exercise, health, science, medicine and therapy. The network becomes a multiplier for own projects of cooperating exercise facilities, recruitment for scientific studies, publications and topics regarding special patient groups, e.g. with lymphedema.  The OnkoAktiv Centers can participate in OnkoAktiv meetings and trainings and they are actively involved in the nationwide development of OnkoAktiv.

Who can become a OnkoAktiv Center?

Cooperating training facilities (OnkoAktiv cooperation members) as well as other institutions (non-members) that are connected to e.g. hospitals or rehabilitation centers with a main emphasis on oncology can become a OnkoAktiv Centers. Requirements for establishing an own network must be fulfilled and sufficient distance to OnkoAktiv Centers is needed. For further questions, please contact us by phone or e-mail.
