Cancer-Related Fatigue Programme

National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) defines cancer-related fatigue (CRF) as a "distressing persistent, subjective sense of tiredness
or exhaustion related to cancer or cancer treatment that is not proportional to recent activity and interferes with usual functioning".

Almost 90% of patients have complained about fatigue during and after the course of cancer treatments.

Luckily, there is strong evidence that exercise interventions can effectively decrease CRF, improving quality of life and self-reported functioning
for patients receiving chemotherapy and cancer survivors. Exercise also preserves cardiorespiratory fitness, lean body mass and muscle strength.

Physiotherapists follow the guidelines of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) to help patients manage the fatigue symptom and
improve quality of life.

The programme includes aerobic fitness training, muscle strengthening, balance and flexibility training. Physiotherapists will adjust the intensity and

precautions. They also give symptoms relieving treatments during the course of training. Training under medical professionals become safe and
