Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility, acceptability, and gather preliminary data on outcomes of a 3-month mHealth intervention to promote physical activity among adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer survivors compared to a delayed intervention control group.


Clinical Trial Description

Adolescent and young adult (AYA) survivors are not meeting recommended physical activity guidelines for cancer survivors, and few interventions to date have focused specifically on promoting physical activity among AYAs or capitalized on new technologies to deliver them. This is a pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) to examine the feasibility, acceptability, and gather preliminary data on outcomes of a 3-month mHealth intervention to promote PA among AYA survivors compared to a delayed intervention control group. This project will focus on how to best integrate self-monitoring with wearable trackers, increase self-efficacy, enhance autonomous motivation, and promote social support in a mobile health behavioral intervention that promotes moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity (MVPA) among AYA survivors. Participants will be AYA cancer survivors (N=60), diagnosed at age 15 or older and currently age 18-39. AYA cancer survivors will be recruited from the three comprehensive cancer centers in North Carolina to participate in this study. The behavioral intervention will consist of an activity tracker, Facebook group, weekly email lessons, and weekly tailored feedback emails. Assessments of objectively-measured physical activity and other outcomes will be completed at baseline, 3, and 6 months.
