Professor Linda Denehy will present 'Cancer: Is Exercise Medicine?'
Developments in treatment options available to people with cancer have resulted in increased numbers of people living longer with what could now be considered a chronic disease. Cancer and its treatments including surgery, chemo and radiotherapy impact the function, activity levels and health related quality of life of individuals across the cancer continuum. There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that people with cancer benefit from a multidisciplinary approach to their recovery. This includes education, exercise and diet before, during and/or after treatment. While much of this evidence is aimed at improving functional and quality of life outcomes there is also emerging research exploring the effects of exercise on tumour growth and cancer recurrence. The role of exercise in oncology will be explored in relation to these important outcomes using examples from several different common cancer tumour streams.
