Manual details framework for UW WELL-FIT

UW Fitness, 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.
