    As physical activity/exercise prescription should be an integral part of the provider's standard practice, cancer survivors provide an important subgroup that greatly benefits from such prescription.  However, due to potential adverse effects of the various treatments, the primary care provider plays a crucial role in ensuring that survivors (along with their other patients) receive the correct exercise prescription guidelines. Unfortunately, current data suggest that many, if not most, physicians are not addressing exercise or weight loss during visits, or are unable to write a basic exercise prescription.  This enduring material outlines the information to consider when writing an exercise prescription for your patients who have survived cancer. 

    Material from the attached handout  will be used in the post-test required for this course.
