MotivA – Motivation for an active everyday life

A free motivation module for oncology sports groups

"MotivA - Motivation for an Active Everyday Life" is a motivational program for building a physically active lifestyle in cancer patients during and after cancer treatment. It teaches effective self-management strategies for integrating more exercise and sport into everyday life, such as setting health goals and using exercise plans and protocols. MotivA can be used as an additional module in oncology sports groups(e.g., rehabilitation sports).

A free project package offers a manual for exercise instructors, including a CD with 7 short audio contributions on the topic of motivation and an accompanying booklet for cancer patients. Exercise instructors can integrate the audio contributions on the topic of motivation into their courses or course participants can listen to the audio contributions at home. The audio input will be used in the course over a period of about 8 weeks, e.g. weekly at the beginning of the course. Approximately 5 to 10 minutes should be planned for each audio input. Various extensions are possible. For the implementation at home, the audio inputs can be downloaded.

The program was developed by the National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT/UCC) in cooperation with the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) in Heidelberg.
