Thank you for visiting the Move More for life website.
This website is being developed to support Australian women diagnosed with breast cancer to participate in health enhancing physical activity.
Engaging in physical activity before, during and after cancer treatment can help to reduce treatment side-effects and improve quality of life. Some research also suggests it may impact on overall survival.
Exercise can be difficult to sustain at the best of times, and can be particularly challenging when dealing with cancer and cancer treatments. Research in Australia and internationally shows that access to exercise support can help people to meet this challenge. However, there are few oncology specific support programs available, and there are access barriers to attending the available community and hospital-based programs for many people.
Our mission with this website is to increase the reach of high quality multi-disciplinary physical activity support for Australian breast cancer survivors.
We have recently completed an evaluation of the website thanks to over 400 research volunteers. We are now in the process of updating the webiste to integrate improvements.
