Trying Activity In Kidney Cancer Survivors (TRACKS)

Trying Activity in Kidney Cancer Survivors (TRACKS) Trial: A Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing the Effects of Supervised Physical Activity
Versus Supervised Physical Activity Plus Behaviour Counselling (ongoing)

The primary purpose is to pilot a study to compare the effects of a supervised physical activity group (SPA) versus a supervised physical activity plus behaviour counselling (SPA+BC) group on change in self-reported PA between baseline, post-intervention, and 12-week follow-up (primary time point) in kidney cancer survivors. 

Secondary outcomes include examining changes in self-reported quality of life (QoL), fatigue, body composition, fitness, physical function, and Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) constructs. Approximately 50 participants will be randomly assigned to the SPA group or to the SPA+BC group.

The SPA+BC group will receive six supervised PA sessions followed by behaviour counselling over a 4-week period that eventually tapers to an unsupervised program.  The SPA group will receive six supervised PA sessions only.  The study results will be used to determine if a behaviour change intervention for kidney cancer survivors based on the TPB is feasible and results in potentially meaningful improvements in PA and selected health outcomes.
