Cancer prehabilitation, a process on the continuum of care that occurs between the time of cancer diagnosis and the beginning of acute treatment, includes physical and psychological assessments that establish a baseline functional level, identifies impairments, and provides targeted interventions that improve a patient's health to reduce the incidence and the severity of current and future impairments. There is a growing body of scientific evidence that supports preparing newly diagnosed cancer… 
Cancer prehabilitation—a short review
Cancer prehabilitation uses the pretreatment time period to prevent a treatment-related functional decline and its subsequent consequences, and therefore occurs between the time of cancer diagnosis
Prehabilitation for adults diagnosed with cancer: A systematic review of long-term physical function, nutrition and patient-reported outcomes.
TLDR
When combined with rehabilitation, greater benefits were seen in 30-day gait and physical functioning compared to prehabilitation alone, and large-scale randomised studies are required to improve overall health and increase long-term cancer patient outcomes.

TLDR
It is suggested that cancer care managers or navigators be trained in the assessment of their patients′ physical and psychological status once the cancer diagnosis has been identified and the patient has decided to receive active treatment, especially for those waiting for surgery at home.
The Role and Scope of Prehabilitation in Cancer Care.
Prehabilitation in the cancer care continuum
TLDR
There is a growing body of scientific evidence, which indicates the relevance of cancer prehabilitation with expected benefits on functional status with better tolerance of necessary cancer treatments, reduced morbidity, and a reduction of health care costs due to a reduce of complications and of length of hospital stays.
Prehabilitation: An Emerging Standard in Exercise Oncology
TLDR
The growing evidence base suggests substantial benefit in physiological markers including pulmonary function, strength, and endurance, preparing individuals with cancer to enter treatment in a healthier state, and emerging evidence suggests prehabilitation positively impacts important disease-specific end points and positively influences surgical and functional outcomes.

Cancer rehabilitation and prehabilitation may reduce disability and early retirement
TLDR
This issue of Cancer, Singer et al report on their investigation into whether a consecutive sample of German oncology inpatients were at higher risk of early retirement if they presented with comorbid mental health disorders than those presenting without psychiatric symptoms.

TLDR
Fatigue can be decreased and functional ability can be improved as a result of aerobic training initiated 1 week before and continued throughout chemotherapy, and this case study presents a novel approach to introducing exercise prior to and continued during 8 weeks of chemotherapy.

TLDR
The integrated programme of prehabilitation and early rehabilitation improved the outcome and shortened the hospital stay — without more complications, pain or dissatisfaction.
A prospective model of care for breast cancer rehabilitation: Bone health and arthralgias
TLDR
An overview of the current knowledge on the management and treatment of bone loss and arthralgias in breast cancer survivors is provided and a framework for rehabilitation care to preserve musculoskeletal health in women treated for breast cancer is presented.
