This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:
Based on this single protocol, we will conduct five separate reviews, each on one of the following types of exercise.
Combined (aerobic and anaerobic) exercise
Aerobic versus anaerobic exercise
The primary aims of these reviews are to:
evaluate the effects of aerobic exercise on CRF in people with cancer;
evaluate the effects of anaerobic exercise on CRF in people with cancer;
evaluate the effects of aerobic and anaerobic (combined) exercise on CRF in people with cancer;
compare the effects of aerobic exercise versus anaerobic exercise on CRF in people with cancer;
evaluate the effects of yoga on CRF in people with cancer.
Furthermore, our aims for each of these reviews are to evaluate the effects at:
different periods of treatment in relation to cancer treatment (before, during, or after treatment);
different periods of assessment (up to 12 weeks follow-up, more than 12 weeks to less than 6 months follow-up, or 6 months or longer follow-up).
Moreover, we will analyse the effects of exercise on HRQoL, adverse events, depression, and anxiety.
This is a protocol.
