Event Description

Full Description:
Over 80% of patients with advanced cancer will develop bone metastases, where the tumour invades into the bone. Specific exercises have been demonstrated to improve bone health in non-cancer populations, however studies exploring the effect of exercise on bone health in people with cancer have typically excluded those with bone metastases. Whether exercise is safe, feasible and effective in patients with bone metastases is current hot topic in the exercise oncology literature. This presentation will discuss current evidence regarding the safety, feasibility and efficacy of exercise in patients with advanced cancer and bone metastases.

Dr Tina Skinner is a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Exercise Physiology within the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences. She is a lead researcher on an exercise oncology team that includes experts from Australia, Canada and Sweden.
