Undergoing treatment for cancer is often difficult and associated with both physical and emotional challenges. Some people appear to benefit from exercise while others find physical activity difficult. This study examined factors that influence intention to exercise during treatment as well as actual behaviours. The results will help to develop supportive care designed to ameliorate the impacts of cancer treatment.
Participants were asked to complete a survey with questions about symptoms, illness perceptions and exercise.
Ethics approval was granted by the Austin Health Human Research Ethics Committee.
This study is no longer recruiting participants.
