With increasing cancer survivorship has come an increased necessity to support people living with cancer (PLWC) to have a good quality of life including being physically active . Using mixed methods, the current study aimed to use the RE-
AIM evaluation framework (Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance) to determine how the football community trust delivered CARE (Cancer and Rehabilitation Exercise) intervention was able to increase participants ’ physical activity in order to improve their quality of life and regain physiological and psychological function . Quantitative outcome data were collected at baseline , 3 and 6 months using the Cancer Physical Activity Standard Evaluation Framework questionnaire . Semi-structured focus groups (n = 5) captured participants ’ (n = 40) lived experience of the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of CARE . Questionnaire data were analysed using repeated measures ANOVAs and qualitative data were thematically analysed . Following diagnosis, CARE was successful in providing participants with a unique and accessible opportunity to become or restart physically activity, by providing a local, socially supportive, and inclusive environment . This resulted in significant increases in physical activity (F (1.58 , 23) = 5.98, p = 0.009), quality of life (QoL) (F (2,36) = 13.12, p = 0.000) and significant reductions in fatigue (F (1.57,31) = 11.19, p = 0.000) over 6 months . Participants also reported becoming more active, recovering physical function, regaining independence, and enhanced psychological well-being as a result of attending CARE . Key design features of CARE were also identified across RE-AIM . CARE, a football community trust delivered physical activity intervention was successful in significantly improving participants ’ QoL and in regaining the physical and psychological functioning of people living with cancer. Results suggest that maintaining engagement in CARE for 6 months and beyond can support people to maintain these changes . Engaging in robust evaluations such as this can help organizations to successfully secure future funding for their programs.
