Thanks to this agreement, medical teams will be financed to carry out clinical research to improve the sequelae of oncological treatments
The Adrián Hoteles Foundation has once again committed itself to support the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) for the Oncological Physiotherapy program, an agreement under which the Canary Islands Foundation will finance medical teams that conduct clinical research in order to improve the sequelae of oncological treatments and thus improve the quality of life of patients.
The signing took place at the headquarters of the Adrián Hoteles Foundation between the president and vice president of the Foundation, Rafael Adrián and María Aurora Rueda, respectively; and the president of the AECC for the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Juan Julio Fernández Rodríguez.
This agreement seeks to offer a specific and specialised treatment, minimising the functional disabilities of the patient and preventing the appearance of sequelae. In this way, it is possible to grant functional independence to both adult and pediatric patients, making the necessary tools, for the improvement of health during and after cancer, known. At the same time, a research study is carried out that will allow to know the medical advances and improve the techniques used.
This initiative, a pioneer in the Canary Islands, can benefit both adults and children who develop symptoms related to the after-effects of the oncological process (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormonotherapy), as well as all the services of the AECC, free of charge.
