  • Comment

Being physically active both during and after cancer is known to improve many of the adverse effects of cancer and its treatment. In some cases, physical activity has even been shown to slow disease progression.

To help people affected by cancer enjoy the benefits of physical activity, it is important to fully understand the barriers they face and what could motivate them to become more active. Macmillan’s report What motivates people with cancer to get active uses qualitative and quantitative research to explore the drivers and barriers to participation in physical activity. Healthcare professionals have a strong influence in bringing about a change in physical activity behaviours in people living with cancer.
