Abstract

Exercise has been identified as an integral component of comprehensive survivorship care and a promising adjuvant therapy to aid in the management of cancer. Leading organisations worldwide now advocate exercise for cancer survivors. Here we briefly review the existing evidence for exercise and survivorship, as well as current research endeavours in Australia. Discussion extends to identify the gaps between research and practice, as well as future research directions needed to drive the field forward. With continued efforts by scientists, clinicians and consumers, there is real potential to strengthen the nexus between scientific evidence and clinical practice and integrate exercise into standard cancer care.
