Population based exercise intervention for prostate cancer patients - RADAR
The aim of this project is to determine the effects, efficacy, retention and compliance of physical exercise interventions in a large established cohort of prostate cancer patients from the Randomised Androgen Deprivation and Radiotherapy (RADAR) study. Specifically, we aim to compare a prostate cancer-specific supervised exercise program against a standard public health physical activity strategy utilizing printed resources. We will assess both in the short and long term, the following risk factors for metabolic syndrome: 1) cardiorespiratory capacity, 2) abdominal obesity, 3) lipid and glycemic control, and 4) self reported physical activity, quality of life and mental health.
