Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

Primary objective

To assess systematically the effects of exercise promoting interventions on exercise behaviour in people living with and beyond cancer.

Secondary objectives

To address the following questions:

  • Which interventions are most effective at improving aerobic fitness and skeletal muscle strength and endurance?        

  • What adverse event rates are attributed to different exercise promoting interventions?        

  • Which interventions are most effective at promoting exercise behaviour amongst patients with different cancers?        

  • Which interventions are most likely to promote long-term (12 months or more) exercise behaviour?       

  • What frequency of contact with exercise professionals is associated with increased exercise behaviour?        

  • What theoretical basis is most associated with increased exercise behaviour?        

  • What behaviour change techniques are most associated with increased exercise behaviour?
