We are seeking rural and remote exercise professionals to deliver programs in exercise oncology

EXCEL is a research study funded by the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, with additional funding from the Alberta Cancer Foundation. The aim of our study is to implement and evaluate the benefit and feasibility of community-based exercise oncology programs for those living in rural and remote regions across Canada (https://bit.ly/39FSVTk).

We also facilitate the development of referral networks between healthcare providers and local exercise professionals, who are delivering exercise oncology programs. By building partnerships in rural communities, EXCEL facilitates patient transition from clinical care to the EXCEL program in their region.

As an exercise professional in our network, you will have access to:

– The Thrive Health Cancer and Exercise Training: https://thrivehealthservices.com/professionals/certification/

– EXCEL Training Day (online): provides information on study logistics and program delivery expectations. Also, learn how to deliver our “exercise and educate” approach to foster a positive motivational climate and integrate behaviour change resources into programs

– Opportunities to shadow and moderate (actively assist) EXCEL programs

– Recordings of previous training events/webinars and invitations to all future training opportunities

– Monthly EXCEL newsletter, updating on study progress and community/fitness professional highlights – learn more about our team that is growing across the country!

Paid opportunity to deliver online and/or in-person EXCEL programs in your community, upon completion of training. This is contingent on having enough participant referrals into the programs – your insight on how to increase awareness in your community will be critical for program success!

Please check out our “EXCEL Participant Voices” video to learn how this program changes lives:
