THERE ARE MANY WAYS YOU CAN BE INVOLVED WITH POP

AS A PATIENT

POP’s program is geared towards empowering the patient to take responsibility for his/her health now and in the future.  By teaching patients how to exercise, eat, de-stress and relax properly, the POP Team show them how to improve and maintain a good quality of life. Many articles have been written about the benefits of a good exercise and diet regime.  The POP Team equip patients with the knowledge to incorporate these regimes into their daily routine before and after surgery and thereafter.

 

Please see some of our frequently asked questions (FAQs)

AS A CAREGIVER

The role of the caregiver is very important to the success of the POP program. Not only does the caregiver provide much needed support and encouragement; they also reinforce the principles of the POP program with the patient. It is hoped that the caregiver will help model the healthy lifestyle that the POP Team espouses.

AS A HEALTHCARE PRACTICIONER

By recommending patients that need the POP program, the Health Practitioner is helping patients receive the support and care they deserve to achieve an optimal outcome from their surgery (i.e. the patient faces fewer risks of complication during and after the surgery; recovers faster, spending fewer days in hospital post-surgery; and returns to normal functionality sooner).

AS A STUDENT

Students have the opportunity to get involved with the POP program either as a volunteer during the summer months, or as a graduate student, conducting research within the POP program. During the academic year, limited undergraduate internships are also granted.

AS A SUPPORTER

POP survives financially through the generosity of a few very supportive people.  Every year a Gala is held in February by the Friends For The Cure, to raise the bulk of the funds that POP relies on to function successfully.  In addition, several Foundations have been very generous to POP, helping out with sponsoring specific research programs. Finally, our patients have been most generous in providing substantial financial support.

Four people work voluntarily for the program: the head researcher, the administrator, and the two psychological support professionals.  Other dedicated professionals work full or part-time for POP.  Costs are kept to a minimum.

Any and everybody is encouraged to support POP as we strongly feel that all patients requiring support before major surgery should be allowed to follow the program.  Only your generosity can make this possible.  We do not receive any government grants or any institutional financial support.
