Study: benefits of exercise after gynaecological cancer treatment

Researchers at the University of Queensland are looking for women who have undergone treatment for gynaecological cancer, to take part in an exercise intervention. This study will help them determine if exercise has a positive effect on recovery following treatment.


As part of this study, you will either undertake a 12-week exercise training program supervised by an accredited exercise physiologist or receive guidelines on undertaking exercise following cancer.


Your experiences about your health, wellbeing and coping with everyday life after treatment will help build better outcomes in the lives of women diagnosed in the future. All participants will receive a free FitBit© Smart watch.

If you are over 18 years and have completed treatment for gynaecological cancer within the last five years, the researches would like to hear from you.
