Project ID: 2020_001_SHO_01

Research has shown participating in regular exercise may have quality of life and physical functioning benefits for people treated for cancer, and there is evidence that it may also impact on survival outcomes. This project aims to examine the types of exercise support currently available to people diagnosed with breast, haematological and reproductive cancers, and to examine thoughts and preferences around exercise programs as a recovery and prevention tool.

The researcher: Dr Camille Short

Dr Camille Short is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne, jointly appointed between the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences and Melbourne School of Health Sciences (Department of physiotherapy). Her research aims to improve survivorship care by increasing access to high quality multi-disciplinary exercise support through innovative technologies that bridge the gap between what is available in clinic and what is available at home.
