The Feasibility of Physical Activity in Advanced Cancer Patients
Physical activity has been shown to have a positive effect on several quality of life outcomes in cancer patients, but few existing studies have focused on the end stages of cancer. The aim of this pilot study is to test the feasibility of a physical activity intervention in advanced cancer patients, from which data can be used to design a randomized controlled trial if results are encouraging.
