Cancer survivors’ experiences of a community-based cancer-specific exercise programme: results of an exploratory survey (CUFITTER study)
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™).
