About this guide

We want everyone living with cancer to get the support and inspiration they need to be physically active, in a way that's right for them.

This document builds on extensive research and evidence from Macmillan’s work with pilot physical activity behaviour change projects. It aims to:

- provide decision makers with the evidence for integrating physical activity into cancer care
- describe effective intervention models - demonstrate the connection to national policy and targets
- outline the economic implications of investing in physical activity for people living with cancer
- enable providers to decide on the right model and to implement it effectively as an integrated part of cancer care.

This guide is designed to be read in conjunction with Physical activity and cancer: the underrated wonderdrug.
