Objectively assessed activity patterns of cancer survivors:
The wheels are turning but are we upside down?

PRESENTER:
Jeff Vallance, PhD, Associate Professor
Canada Research Chair in Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Management
Athabasca University

ABSTRACT: While physical activity among cancer survivors has been shown to be safe and effective at improving health outcomes, less is know about the role of sedentary behaviour and how cancer survivors spend their day (e.g., active, sitting, sleeping). Advances in measurement to estimate these behaviours will be discussed as well as the limitations of methodological variation among studies.
