Significance & Problem: Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer in Taiwanese women. Exercise has emerged as an important quality of life intervention for breast cancer survivors. However, there is no information regarding exercise behavior among breast cancer survivors in Taiwan. Purpose: To examine the trends in exercise participation and breast cancer survivors¡? levels of exercise. Methods: A prospective, longitudinal, repeated measure study (T1: completed treatment; T2:3 months; T3: 6 months). Data Analysis: Descriptive analyses, chi-square, and ANOVA. Findings: Characteristics of 191 subjects with stage I (26%) or stage II (52%) breast cancer were: mean ages were 47.6 ¡? 9.9 years, 74% were married, 37% were homemakers, 45% were Buddhist, and 33% were college educated. The most common activities were walking, hiking, calisthenics, chi-gun & Tai-chi, fast walking, and cycling. The exercise diary revealed that those exercisers engaged in light to moderate intensity for approximately 15 minutes per day over six months [T1,T2,T3 duration-108.0,110.8, 118.9 minutes; frequency-7.5, 8.3, 7.9; intensity- 10.8, 11.4, 10.9/ per week]. There were significant increases in frequency, duration, and intensity of exercise from T1 to T2 (p= .001; p= .010; p< .001) and T1 to T3 (p= .009; p= .004; p=.002). For the distributions of exercise five stages for participants over time (precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenance), results compared to T1 showed 45% increased, 42% remained and 13% decreased exercise stages among five exercise stages at T2 and 59% increased, 28% remained and 13% decreased at T3. Implication for Nursing Practice: Although the average time per session and intensity spent among this sample was actually below the recommended guidelines for exercise, they expressed the intention to increase exercise levels. This finding suggested that women respond positively to being physically active as they recover from their cancer treatment. Funded by Department of Defense, DAMD17-03-1-0521
