Purpose: Determine outcomes of a three-month interdisciplinary health promotion program for cancer survivors. Problem: Complications following cancer treatment linger for years. These include cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal and neurologic complications, psychosocial adjustment and cancer recurrence. Theoretical/conceptual framework: This interdisciplinary model of health promotion intervention includes a physical activity program supported by web-based education to improve physical fitness, diet, physiological, immune and behavioral responses. Hypothesis: Health promotion (HP) groups as opposed to the usual care group (UCG) will show improvements in physical fitness, immune system function, dietary habits, quality of life; and decreases in cancer-related complications and personal healthcare expenses. Description: This model integrates previous research to advance the prevention of secondary complications and recurrence, and to support survivorship. Independently, similar interventions have been used during acute treatment for breast cancer and after bone marrow transplant. Few studies combine interventions in an interdisciplinary health promotion program or examine immune parameter outcomes. Design: Three group, repeated measures. Two groups undergo levels of the health promotion program; one acts as control. Subjects: 120 adult cancer survivors within one year following medical treatment. Methods: Subjects are tested on validated behavioral and biological variables at baseline, one, two and three months. Group 1HP receives four weeks of supervised health promotion intervention; Group 2HP, one introductory educational session. Educational materials are web-based. Groups complete logs and receive phone calls weekly. Methods of Analysis: Descriptive; MANOVA tests hypotheses at p <.05; post-hoc testing for group differences. Clinical Relevance: This interdisciplinary health promotion model offers multiple clinical, educational, and research initiatives for improving the broad spectrum rehabilitation needs of long-term cancer survivors.
