We have the program, what now? Development of an implementation plan to bridge the research-practice gap prevalent in exercise oncology Abstract Background: Exercise has emerged as a promising therapy for people with cancer. Novel programs have been developed to translate research into practice; however, implementation barriers have limited their success in part because successful translation [...]
Can Exercise Adaptations Be Maintained in Men with Prostate Cancer Following Supervised Programmes? Implications to the COVID-19 Landscape of Urology and Clinical Exercise In this brief correspondence, we evaluate the potential impact of pivoting from face-to-face supervised to unsupervised home-based exercise programmes to contextualise the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in prostate cancer patients. [...]
The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia has released their Prostate cancer survivorship essentials framework: guidelines for practitioners. In this document 7 priorities are highlighted for immediate action. Abstract Objective To develop contemporary and inclusive prostate cancer survivorship guidelines for the Australian setting. Participants and Methods A four‐round iterative policy Delphi was used, with a [...]
About the Webcast Prostate Cancer Survivorship: The Long Run. For the first time PCFA is bringing together experts from New York, Vancouver, Sydney, and Perth to talk about the challenges of prostate cancer survivorship. PCFA is calling it out – men impacted by prostate cancer face specific challenges that are seldom addressed in mainstream [...]
Protein Supplementation and Resistance Training in Childhood Cancer Survivors Supervised (partially) resistance training among childhood cancer survivors with protein supplementation is not more effective at increasing total lean body mass than resistance training alone. However, the resistance training volume was possibly too low to benefit from additional protein? Abstract Purpose Muscle weakness, low lean [...]
Inflammation Mediates Exercise Effects on Fatigue in Patients with Breast Cancer This paper adds good new knowledge on the mechanisms by which exercise influences cancer biology and outcomes. PURPOSE: The randomized controlled OptiTrain trial showed beneficial effects on fatigue after a 16-week exercise intervention in patients with breast cancer undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy. We hypothesize [...]
Resistance Exercise Dosage in Men with Prostate Cancer: Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Meta-regression Purpose Resistance training (RT) improves an array of treatment-related adverse effects in men with prostate cancer, however, the minimal dosage required is unknown. We systematically reviewed the RT effects in prostate cancer patients to determine the minimal dosage regarding the exercise [...]
Resistance training in breast cancer patients undergoing primary treatment: a systematic review and meta-regression of exercise dosage Latest systematic review & meta-regression from our team at Edith Cowan University suggesting low volume resistance training may be sufficient to induce beneficial strength gains in women with breast cancer while undergoing treatment. In untrained women a low dosage [...]
Efficacy of a weight loss program prior to robot assisted radical prostatectomy in overweight and obese men with prostate cancer Background Obesity in prostate cancer patients is associated with poor prostate-cancer specific outcomes. Exercise and nutrition can reduce fat mass; however, few studies have explored this as a combined pre-surgical intervention in clinical practice. [...]
