SABCS 2023 | Challenges in integrating exercise as a cancer treatment in clinical practice

Kerry S. Courneya, PhD, University of Alberta, Canada, highlights the challenges of integrating exercise into cancer treatment practices, particularly in the complex landscape of breast cancer treatments. The multitude of interventions, including surgery, chemotherapy, biologic therapies, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy, poses a significant challenge in determining the optimal timing for incorporating exercise. Understanding where exercise might fit in the continuum of these treatments and defining the appropriate exercise prescription for each phase becomes crucial. This interview took place at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) congress in San Antonio, TX.
