|Co-creating in-hospital physical activity programming to enhance health for children during treatment for cancer
|Mixed-methods longitudinal study
|In-hospital physical activity during treatment for childhood cancer is proven to have clear benefits and is widely advocated, though not implemented within service delivery in Canada. This Mixed-Methods Longitudinal project will produce an in-hospital physical activity program that will be disseminated to pediatric oncology units across Canada. Data collected will be analyzed using the hybrid inductive-deductive approach which will be guided by the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research framework. Stakeholder engagement is anticipated to facilitate buy-in for the program co-creation phase later on.
|The study will fill the gap of patient engagement in pediatric oncology service delivery. The program produced will be disseminated to pediatric oncology units across Canada, serving as a sustainable implementation model for in-hospital physical activity.
