People with lung cancer are often over 65 and have a higher symptom burden compared to other common cancers, impacting quality of life and treatment maintenance. Physical activity and nutrition positively impact quality of life and may reduce treatment-related side effects. However, older adults are often not included in studies.
The purpose of this project is to examine the feasibility and acceptability of a tailored wellbeing (nutrition and activity) program for older adults with lung cancer beginning a new line of systemic anti-cancer therapy.
