Principal Investigators: Dr Susan Catt and Dr Helena Harder

Collaborators: Jan (cancer survivor) and Erica Sheward Trustees of Cancer United™ (No.1155747) a registered cancer support charity based in West Sussex, UK through which the CU Fitter™ exercise programme is delivered.

Brief Description: Exercise levels often decline following cancer diagnosis despite growing evidence of its benefits. Treatment side-effects, older age, lack of confidence and opportunity to exercise with others in similar circumstances influence this.

The CUFITTER study explored the experiences of people attending a cancer-specific community-based exercise programme (CU Fitter™).
