Researchers seeking Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s survivors in NS
Dalhousie University and Capital Health are supporting a study that will help to better understand the role of physical activity in the lives of young adult lymphoma survivors. They sent us the following information to share with you:
Most importantly, participants must have a confirmed diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Disease or Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
- You have received treatment and/or follow-up care from the QEII medical oncology team;
- You were diagnosed between the ages of 16 to 44;
- You are currently be between the ages of 18 to 50;
- You have been off active treatment for a minimum of three months;
- You are capable of being physically active; and
- You have your physician’s approval to participate.
This is a three-month, home-based study. Should you decide to participate, you will be asked to report your physical activity behaviour and overall quality of life at four points in time. All study materials and resources will be sent to you through the mail.
Should you qualify and consent to participate, they will send you an introductory survey.
Once you have completed and returned this survey, they will send you a physical activity plan with activity recommendations. They ask that you try and follow the recommendations as much as you are able.
They will then send you a follow-up survey to assess your physical activity and quality of life at every four weeks for three months.
