    Exercise for the Management of Cancer: Exercise Oncology Course

    This course is designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to design and implement safe and effective exercise programs for people with cancer. The course also provides critical information required for allied health professionals to provide evidence-based advice about the role of exercise in the management of cancer.


    The course is a pre-requisite for accredited exercise physiologists to run an official 'Life Now Exercise Program'. The Life Now Exercise Program is a 12 week program which aims to help people living with cancer tolerate and recover from intensive treatments through building strength, improving fitness, reducing fatigue and learning how to make exercise a part of their lifestyle. Accredited exercise physiologists who complete the course are eligible to run an official 'Life Now Exercise Program' with the option of patients being subsidised by the Cancer Council of Western Australia.

    The course is comprised of two components, a suite of theoretical modules completed on-line and a one day practical workshop.
