ACUMEN – Enhancing treatment outcomes after gynaecological cancer
Looking after your wellbeing with exercise after treatment
ACUMEN is an exercise program that supports women adjusting to life after treatment for gynaecological cancer. It aims to enhance physical and mental wellbeing by promoting an active lifestyle.
We understand that side effects from cancer treatment might make women feel uncomfortable about exercising.
We can help you safely and sustainably integrate exercise into your daily routine following treatment.
As part of the study, you will participate in a 12-week exercise program supervised by an accredited exercise physiologist who is experienced in working with women recovering from cancer treatment. Depending on your circumstances, supervision can happen face-to-face or via telehealth. You will also contribute to this research project by sharing your recovery experience with us.
Your experience will contribute immensely to our understanding of how to help women who struggle with similar lifestyle adjustments.
Over 100 women have participated in the study already.
If you are over 18 years and have completed treatment for gynaecological cancer within the last five years, we would like to hear from you.
Your experiences about your health, wellbeing and coping with everyday life after treatment will help build better outcomes in the lives of women diagnosed in the future. All participants will receive a free FitBit© Smart watch.
