About the study

This project is investigating the effects of exercise during chemotherapy on cardiovascular health and function in women with breast cancer. However, prior to developing and delivering this exercise program, we believe it is important to gain an understanding of women’s perceptions and beliefs towards exercise. We are interested in surveying women with breast cancer currently undergoing chemotherapy, breast cancer survivors currently in remission, and women without any history of breast cancer. We encourage you to participate so that we can appropriately design an exercise intervention for women with breast cancer currently undergoing chemotherapy. This will have a wide range of benefits for women undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer by providing clear exercise guidelines that will improve health and be suitable.

Eligibility criteria

You are eligible to complete this survey if you fall into one of the following groups:

  • Currently undergoing breast cancer chemotherapy
  • Breast cancer survivor currently in remission (completed chemotherapy between 3 months and 5 years ago)
  • Women with no history of cancer aged between 40 and 70 years old.
