About

The goal of this research is to explore cancer survivors' and their romantic partners' interest in a couples-based physical activity intervention and whether cancer-specific exercise education influences exercise beliefs and intentions.

Full description

This study will assess multiple predictors of couples-based physical activity interest among both survivors and partners including gender, age, current exercise, relationship satisfaction and partner support for exercise. Additionally, this study will include an experimental manipulation in which half of the sample will be randomized to receive cancer-specific exercise education.
