The APPROACH project has two stages: a pilot study and a randomised-controlled trial (RCT). We are currently recruiting to the pilot study, which aims to explore the feasibility of using a smartphone app to deliver a behaviour change intervention to encourage the uptake of physical activity in people LWBC. We hope to recruit 90 participants with breast, prostate, or colorectal cancer for this pilot. The results will then inform the design of the larger RCT.
This project is funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research and participants are recruited from hospitals in Yorkshire.
