The Alberta moving beyond breast cancer (AMBER) cohort study: a prospective study of physical activity and health-related fitness in breast cancer survivors
The primary goal of the AMBER study is to examine any associations between self-reported and objective physical activity and health related fitness and breast cancer outcomes in survivors. AMBER also hopes to examine the optimal amount of physical activity for breast cancer survivors so future targeted interventions can be developed for breast cancer survivors. These findings will also help to inform future clinical and community-based programs for breast cancer survivors. This paper outlines the background, these goals, and the procedures of the AMBER study.
