Major surgery comes with the risk of complications and delayed or poor recovery. Improving physical fitness and healthy lifestyle surrounding major surgery enhance recovery after surgery. In this project, we explore how to offer this guidance tailored and person-centred.


The aim of this project is to develop and evaluate a care pathway in which we provide patients with tailored person-centred guidance surrounding their surgery to improve physical fitness and lifestyle change.


During the course of the project, the results obtained will be published here. After completion, you will find a summary of the project's final results here.
