Summary in English

Evaluation of the centre

In the spring 2010, Copenhagen Centre for Cancer and Health (former called the Health Care Centre for Cancer Survivors) was evaluated.
The objective of the evaluation was to describe and evaluate the municipal rehabilitation at the centre.

The results of the evaluation have been published (in Danish) in the book: Evaluation of rehabilitation at the Health Care Centre for Cancer Survivors – Municipal measures 2007 -2009.

The book has a description of the experience gained during the first years of the centre as well as an external evaluation of the rehabilitation programmes provided to the citizens living in the City of Copenhagen.

“Well, you know – you have symptoms of something and you come here and tell the others about it and they say “I know just what you are talking about, that is how I´m feeling” – it´s a nice experience and makes me feel that I am all right”
