Project Lead, Professor Jane Andrews, talks about why the Central Adelaide Local Health Network developed this program to support consumers to optimise their health prior to surgery.

The CALHN My PreHab Program went live in July 2022 and includes:

  1. A hospital specific digital prehabilitation pathway for patients referred for consideration of surgery at CALHN sites

  2. The CALHN PreHab website, which publicly hosts core information included in the digital pathway for both consumers and GPs
