Abstract:Fatigue is known as a frequent and invalidating residual symptom of cancer. More than 20% of cancer survivors report severe persistent fatigue after one year of treatment. Chronic cancer-related fatigue (CCRF) occurs as a consequence of the cancer itself, and, as a side effect of cancer treatment. However, the precise underlying etiology is unknown. The number of cancer survivors who suffer from cancer related complaints such as CCRF, will increase. This substantially increasing prevalence creates a major problem for cancer care, as it raises the pressure on both the care and the aftercare. The aim of the study was to analysing the physical activity patterns of CCRF people and investigates whether treatment goals can be defined which are more personalised and as such useful for better treatment programs.
