Prospective Evaluation of Adherence to Recommended Activity Regimen in Patients Following Treatment of Stages II and III Colorectal Cancer.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Number of Participants Who Maintained an Exercise Regimen Average of 18 Metabolic Units (MET) Per Week or Greater
One MET is the energy expenditure for sitting quietly for 1 hour. MET scores for walking were assigned based on the pace and duration reported. For other activities, a leisurely to moderate intensity score was selected. The scores for MET-hours per week for each activity were calculated from the reported hours per week engaged in that activity multiplied by the assigned MET score, and individual activities were summed to derive a total MET-hours per week.
