Kidney Cancer Clinical Trial

Mobile Intervention – Physical Activity in Cancer Treatment

Summary

Aim 1. Determine the feasibility and acceptability of the proposed mobile technology intervention to increase physical activity patients receiving treatment for renal cell carcinoma.

Aim 2. Evaluate the effect of the proposed intervention components (affective framing, intention planning, and goal-setting) on changes in physical activity.

Full Description

Recent analyses have indicated that physical activity reduces mortality risk among patients with RCC.1. Physical activity also provides additional benefits for patients undergoing treatment for cancer such as improved quality of life and sleep, and reduced treatment-related fatigue. However, individuals receiving treatment for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) often fail to engage in sufficient physical activity. Many cancer survivors experience a decrease in their physical activity after diagnosis2 and the majority of RCC survivors do not meet the recommended guidelines for physical activity.3 Traditional physical activity interventions require significant resources and present substantial barriers for participants (travel, time commitments, etc.). In contrast, mobile technologies enable delivery of interventions with significantly fewer resources. These technologies also facilitate the delivery of just-in-time adaptive interventions (JITAIs) in which intervention support is provided at only at times when an opportunity for positive changes exists.4 The purpose of this support the development of a JITAI in RCC patients. Evaluation of the acceptability and efficacy of three intervention strategies (affective framing, intention planning, goal-setting, and savoring) will determine their inclusion in the JITAI.
