Exercise Training Beyond Breast Cancer (EXPINKT™)
Exercise Training Beyond Breast Cancer (EXPINKT™) is a unique exercise programme developed by Dr. Lynnette Jones to provide breast cancer survivors with an individually tailored and monitored programme of exercise that takes into consideration any adverse or ongoing side effects of cancer treatment. The programme is designed to improve physical function, strength, and cardiovascular health. All clients are referred to the clinic programme from Dunedin Hospital by their Oncologist or Breast Surgeon and are monitored and supervised by staff fully trained in exercise physiology and cancer recovery and senior students under supervision. The interaction of academic staff with clinical consultants to provide exercise opportunities for women diagnosed with breast cancer is the first of its kind in New Zealand.
