SURFit - A physical activity intervention for childhood cancer survivors

EBPI researchers are currently recruiting for SURFit: a physical activity study in collaboration with the Children’s University Hospital Basel focusing on childhood cancer survivors. The aim of this project is to investigate whether physical activity
can help to improve heart health, bone health and psychological health in people
who survived childhood cancer.

Cancer therapy improvements in the last decades have substantially increased childhood cancer survival. However, childhood cancer survivors often suffer from
late effects (e.g. heart problems).
Scientific literature suggests that physical activity has a remarkable potential in prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. However, this potential has never
been shown in a large study in childhood cancer survivors. The SURFit study aims
to close this gap.
