Improving Physical Activity in Young Adult Cancer Survivors (This study is enrolling participants by invitation only)

Complete title: Improving physical activity in young adult cancer survivors

Research Study Number 9865
Principal Investigator K.Scott Baker
Phase NA

Research Study Description

This study is enrolling participants by invitation only.

The Primary Goal is to conduct a 12 week pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) of the Fitbit Flex, a popular, affordable, wearable physical activity tracking device, and the Fitbit mobile health (mHealth) app. The target population will be cancer survivors 18-39 years old recruited from the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. For the intervention group, peer influences will be engaged via a private, social network (e.g. a Facebook group) customized for survivors. Measurements will be completed (1) at baseline, prior to randomization, and (2) during the final week of the intervention period (follow-up measure). This pilot study will provide initial proof of concept and allow for further customization of the intervention for cancer survivors in anticipation of a future, larger proposal to study physical activity and related outcomes over a multi-year period.

Besides conducting exploratory analyses of primary and secondary outcomes for this pilot RCT, we also specify feasibility criteria including: (1) recruiting 50 cancer survivors ages 18-39 years and between 1.0-5.0 years from the completion of active cancer therapy, (2) intervention participants wear the Fitbit Flex on the majority of all intervention days during the 12-week intervention period, and (3) =75% of all participants complete online questionnaire data collection at Time 1 and Time 2.
