About the research
Every year, as many as 70,000 people in Belgium are told they have cancer. Studies show that exercise during treatment has a beneficial effect on the quality of life of cancer patients. And yet 70% of them move a lot less after the diagnosis than before. Often patients and the professionals who support them are left with questions such as "Is it safe?" and "How much exercise is good?". With 'Moving Cancer Care', Dimitri Vrancken (Artevelde University of Applied Sciences) and his colleagues tackle those questions and offer tools to help patients with cancer exercise more.
