Physical Activity Post-cancer for Adolescents and Young Adults (PAPAYA) Pilot trial-Qualitative Component
This Physical Activity Post-Cancer for Adolescents and Young Adults (PAPAYA) pilot trial aims to evaluate clinical conversations promoting physical activity among adolescents and young adults, 10-17-years old, at least 1 year and up to 5 years post-cancer treatment, and their healthcare providers.
Aim: In conjunction with the Qualitative and Mixed Methods Core (QMMC), we will rigorously apply the Communication Quality Assessment method to evaluate healthcare providers conversations with 10-17-year-old adolescents and young adults at least 1 year and up to 5 years post-cancer treatment in promoting physical activity.
Hypothesis. There will be predictable characteristics of the conversations that will lead to adolescents and young adults increasing their physical activity. This information will be used to develop a toolkit for healthcare providers regarding the best approaches to successfully refer 10-17-year-old adolescents and young adults to physical activity programs.
