Outpatient cancer rehabilitation

“Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always.”

Louis Pasteur


More and more people in Switzerland are beating cancer. However, the disease and/or its treatments can lead to physical, psychological and social problems. As a result, Centre d’Oncologie des Eaux-Vives has launched a cancer rehabilitation programme with the support of the Swiss Cancer League.

Its goal? It aims to improve patients’ quality of life, making it easier for them to return to everyday life and work.


The programme offered by Centre d’Oncologie des Eaux-Vives is overseen by a medical oncologist and a radiotherapist, and coordinated by a specialist nurse.

If you would like to take part in this programme, your referring doctor remains your point of contact.

This outpatient programme is a pilot project across Geneva supported by the Swiss Cancer League


The core team is made up of Dr Claudia Collao-Lamb, a Swiss Medical Association (FMH)-certified medical oncologist, Dr Christine Rossier, a Swiss Medical Association (FMH)-certified radiotherapist and Sophie Glemet, a specialist oncology nurse and programme coordinator.

The different therapists who provide the cancer rehabilitation care all share the same fundamental values:

  • Medical ethics
  • Excellence
  • Transparency


If you would like to take part in this programme, or if you have been referred by your doctor, please make an appointment with the nurse coordinator for an initial meeting. You will have an enrolment assessment and your medical history will be taken to determine your needs and requirements.

The programme is 12 weeks. A mid-programme assessment with the nurse coordinator can be arranged. An end-of-programme assessment will assess the impact of the rehabilitation programme on your quality of life. You or your doctor can request that the programme is extended.
