Abstract [en]

quantitative studies have substantiated the significant effects of exercise on physical functioning, theindividual’s perspective of participating in an exercise program has rarely been considered. The purpose of thisstudy was to explain the impact of a community based exercise program on the lives of persons with cancerand their caregivers. Based on Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory, a single explanatory case study withmultiple embedded units of analyses was conducted. Interviews were conducted with 10 individualsrepresenting participants with cancer, their caregivers, and health care providers. Data were analyzed usingYin’s case study method. Four themes emerged (Sense of Community, Building Relationships, Bridging theGap, and Living Life Abundantly), which identified the unique characteristics of this community basedexercise program. Incorporation of these characteristics into program planning may benefit othercommunities that aspire to offer a similar program to improve patient outcomes and enhance quality of life.
