The PAWN-Q Study: An Exploratory Analysis of Perceived Needs Regarding Physical Activity, Appearance, Weight, Nutrition, and Quality of Life in Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivors
This study will examine needs related to adolescent and young adult cancer survivors' perception of weight, body image, eating behaviors, physical activity, and quality of life in survivorship.
Poor body image may be one driver of distress for adolescent and young adults (AYA) after cancer and may have implications on weight, health behaviors, and quality of life after treatment. The objective of this qualitative study is to explore the lived experience of treatment-related physical changes including weight fluctuations, body image and health behaviors on quality of life in survivorship. The results from this study have the potential to be translated into AYA cancer survivorship clinical care and inform healthy lifestyle behavioral interventions catering to appearance-related sensitivities.
