Advancing Survival after Cancer Outcomes Trial (ASCOT)

There is a need to empirically test whether health behaviour change has an impact on cancer-related outcomes. ASCOT is a randomised-controlled trial (RCT) of a tailored theory-based intervention aimed at helping breast, prostate and colorectal cancer patients improve health behaviours that are relevant and important to them (for example, increasing physical activity levels, improving dietary patterns, stopping smoking, reducing alcohol consumption). In total, 1152 patients diagnosed with breast, prostate and colorectal cancer who have finished primary curative treatment have been enrolled.
