Description

As the numbers of cancer survivors continues to increase, attention must now focus on quality of life in cancer survivorship. Growing scientific evidence shows that exercise and physical activity can help patients to manage many cancer and treatment related side-effects, increase physical fitness and improve psychological wellbeing. Exercise rehabilitation is therefore promoted as an important part of the cancer care pathway, however in Ireland we have a lot of work to do to increase access to exercise rehabilitation services and to ensure that people are referred to appropriate services based on their own individual needs.

 

Dr Emer Guinan is an Irish Cancer Society researcher from the Trinity St James’s Cancer Institute. Her work examines personalised approaches to exercise prescription in people living with and beyond cancer. During this webinar she will discuss the benefits of exercise in cancer survivorship and explain why exercise rehabilitation should be incorporated into the cancer care pathway. She will discuss the ongoing work from two Irish Cancer Society funded projects – the ExMet project which examined exercise participation in patients living with bone metastases and how this related to quality of life and risk of fracture, and the recently funded PERCS programme which will develop an exercise referral pathway to support personalised exercise prescription and physical rehabilitation for cancer survivors in response to COVID.
