Manual details framework for UW WELL-FIT

Our Fitness staff, a pioneer in exercise programs for cancer rehabilitation, has published a comprehensive manual titled "Active Living for Older Adults in Treatment for Cancer."

This large-scale project, funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada through the Active Living Coalition for Older Adults (ALCOA), is available on a national basis to other individuals or organizations interested in starting an exercise program for individuals undergoing treatment for cancer, with a focus on the older adult.

This manual that includes a DVD with several participant interviews (see UW WELL-FIT video), is a valuable resource that details essential aspects and considerations of a successful cancer rehabilitation program, using UW WELL-FIT as the framework.

For more on the manual, including a PDF version of the manual itself, please visit Active Aging Canada.
