Exercise Intervention for LGBT Cancer Survivors

Exercise Intervention for LGBT Cancer Survivors

The purpose of this study is to test preliminary efficacy, as well as acceptability and feasibility, of a dyadic exercise intervention, the current study will randomize LGBT cancer survivors and their non-professional caregivers as dyads to either an individual or a dyadic Exercise for Cancer Patients (EXCAP) intervention. The primary outcome assessed will be psychological distress. Analyses will involve pre-post comparisons of outcomes across the study arms, testing the hypothesis that a 6 week, daily, dyadic exercise intervention will result in greater improvements in psychological distress than an individual intervention.
