Young Adult, Cancer, Physical Activity Clinical Trial
Step-Up Intervention for Self-Management of Fatigue in Young Adults Receiving Chemotherapy
The purpose of the study is to determine the impact of a physical activity intervention on the self-management of fatigue in young adults receiving chemotherapy. Half of the participants will receive an intervention which includes education and resources to set physical activity goals and monitor progress toward goals.
Interventions to increase physical activity have been shown to relieve fatigue in patients receiving chemotherapy, but no studies have tested a physical activity intervention to improve fatigue in young adults receiving chemotherapy. This study will determine the impact of a physical activity intervention on the self-management process variables of self-efficacy and self-regulation and their relationships to physical activity and fatigue severity in young adults receiving chemotherapy. ;
