Course Description

CEU Course Description 

Cancer is a leading cause of burden of disease globally.  Although exercise is an effective treatment for many chronic diseases, it is important to know how much exercise can be safely tolerated in the immune-compromised population of people with cancer.  The goal of this CEU course is to investigate if there is a dose-response effect of exercise on inflammation and fatigue in adult cancer survivors, and if there is a dose-response effect of exercise for improving functional activity in this population. This course is based on an article by the Elsevier Journal of Physiotherapy.

 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Discuss the exercise intensity that has a greater effect on reducing fatigue and increasing walking endurance.
  2. Examine the type of cancer for which exercise can play a significant role in reducing fatigue.
  3. Identify the impact that exercise has on pro-inflammatory markers and how this contributes to cancer risk and tumor development.
  4. Provide the current recommendations for exercise for people with cancer.
