The Exercise and Cancer Survivorship™ continuing education home study course presents the science behind the benefits of exercise for cancer survival and survivorship as well as the application of that science to the design or adaptation of exercise programs for cancer patients and survivors. This course provides evidence-based information to assist health and fitness professionals in using exercise to help cancer survivors with recovery, rehabilitation and reducing the risk of recurrence.

This continuing education home study course offered to you in a distance-learning format places emphasis on practical application, including the incidence and prevalence of the most common cancers; common cancer treatments and side effects; the benefits of exercise after a diagnosis of cancer; exercise testing, prescription and programming; nutrition and weight management; counseling for health behavior change, and injury prevention.
