Research: Adherence to a randomized controlled trial of aerobic exercise in breast cancer survivors

In a May 2009 Journal of Cancer Survivorship article, Adherence to a randomized controlled trial of aerobic exercise in breast cancer survivors: the Yale exercise and survivorship study, researchers at Yale University found in studying exercise adherence that: “Overall, the women randomized to the exercise group demonstrated high levels of adherence to the intervention, meeting 81% of the prescribed 150 min/week. Our adherence rates are similar to rates observed in exercise trials in healthy, postmenopausal overweight women, and breast cancer survivors. […] Whether lower doses of exercise may improve cancer prognosis and survivorship is unknown.”
