2018 Roundtable Reports: Exercise Recommendations for Cancer Survivors

In 2018, the ACSM convened a roundtable to translate the most recent scientific evidence on exercise oncology into recommendations for health care providers and exercise specialists . In this Roundtable, attendees discussed:

  •  evidence-based exercise prescriptions for cancer survivors to improve certain side-effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment,
  • the role of physical activity in cancer prevention, treatment and control, and
  • how individuals working in oncology clinical settings can play a role in ensuring patients become more physically active by assessing, advising, and referring patients to exercise programs.

The papers published from the ACSM’s 2018 International Multidisciplinary Roundtable on Exercise and Cancer can be found below:
