A Randomized Trial of Physical-Activity Motivation in Breast Cancer Patients.

Research shows that exercise can prolong survival in cancer patients. A major challenge, however, is to engage patients in sustained physical activity. Research has yet to determine which motivators are optimal. We propose to fill this gap with a randomized study of two incentives that seem most promising in helping survivors boost their chances of doing well.
