Facilitating Physical Activity Behaviour and Health Outcomes in Breast Cancer Patients Receiving Chemotherapy
Breast cancer and its treatments can take a toll on the physical and psychosocial well-being
of cancer survivors. Few interventions can help breast cancer patients improve their
physical strength, stamina, and overall well-being. Developing ways to facilitate PA
behaviour during chemotherapy for breast cancer are necessary. This trial explores ways that
breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy can learn about and engage in PA during
chemotherapy. This trial will also give Southern Alberta breast cancer survivors an
opportunity to participate in evidence-based programs designed to facilitate their health,
breast cancer recovery, and disease-free survival.
The investigators primary hypothesis is that women receiving the PA intervention resource
kit will report a more positive change in self-reported PA at the end of chemotherapy
treatments when compared to the group receiving standard materials.
