Peer support in maintaining physical activity and health following an exercise training intervention for cancer survivors: A randomised controlled trial

Project Member(s): Chambers, S.

Funding or Partner Organisation: National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC Partnership Projects)

Start year: 2017

Summary: With improved screening and treatment, the number of cancer survivors in our ageing population continues to grow. However, a very high number have poor quality of life and reduced functional capacity. Exercise addresses these problems, yet very few cancer survivors exercise regularly. This study will combine high intensity intermittent exercise with peer support for cancer survivors to maintain regular exercise and their health in a community setting.
