Abstract
Background: Emerging evidence suggests that regular exercise plays an important role in improving physical function and quality of life following a breast cancer diagnosis. Evidence also suggests it can reduce the risk of recurrence. Despite these benefits, research has shown that women with breast cancer are known to reduce their activity during treatment and afterwards. More research is required to explore what type of interventions may help these women become more active. Design & Methods: The breast unit charity, at St Margaret’s Hospital, Epping, funded a qualitative study to explore if running exercise classes in the hospital gym would aid or initiate return to exercise. The classes ran weekly, for 6 weeks, led by a fitness instructor, trained to CanRehab level 4 to ensure she had the requisite knowledge and expertise. 8 participants consented to attend these sessions. They were interviewed prior to and after the classes were completed which were audio taped and transcribed verbatim to ensure accuracy. Results: The exercise sessions had positive effects on all but one participant who did not enjoy the aerobic element. The main study findings suggested that exercising with women in the same boat, with a specially trained instructor and being informed of the benefits of exercise could help women to become more active. Conclusion: 56 patients have now attended classes over the last year due to team referrals and continued funding. An on-going service evaluation has highlighted 70% wish these classes continue and now a further class is running in the community.
