Cachexia – towards a multi-modal intervention strategy – Dr. Annemie Schols


Cachexia is a complex problem – that’s what is again clear at this conference (Washington, 23-25 September 2016) So a complex problem requires an advanced solution The solution lies I think in a multi-modal intervention strategy for those patients In this respect we can also learn from similar intervention approaches that have been developed in other diseases for instance in chronic disease likes COPD We can learn from this because lately (in COPD) a lot of research has been performed regarding multiple multi-modal management of a problem as cachexia because a pulmonary rehabilitation is a management strategy that is already accepted in COPD but not yet in cancer
