Physical Activity and Exercise Adherence in People With Hematologic Malignancies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

People with hematologic malignancies face serious physical and psychologic adverse health outcomes, such as fatigue and functional impairments, resulting from the underlying cancer, the cancer treatment, or both. Physical activity and exercise are widely recommended to address these concerns and optimize health during and after treatment. People with hematologic malignancies face critical health challenges, such as neutropenia and thrombocytopenia, which affect their ability to initiate or maintain a physical activity or exercise program; thus, adherence becomes problematic. This report discusses these health challenges and identifies potential strategies, such as removing barriers to exercise, to promote physical activity and exercise adherence.
