Childhood Cancer Survivors’ Affective Response to Exercise

Childhood Cancer Survivors’ Affective Response to Exercise

Researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital want to learn about the measurement of implicit association bias towards or against exercise in childhood cancer survivors. Additionally, researchers want to learn more about the physical and emotional experience of exercise from our survivors.

The plan for this study is to administer single category implicit association tests (PSC-IAT’s) to participants during on campus SJLIFE testing and use this data to determine the feasibility of this tool’s use in survivors of childhood cancer without cognitive impairment. This study will also administer the Behavioral Regulations in Exercise Questionnaire (BREQ-2)37 to participants as a construct validity check to the PSC-IAT.

The procedures include PSC-IAT and BREQ-2 tests (before and after strenuous exercise as part of the SJLIFE protocol) and a qualitative interview. These will be in addition to standard components of the SJLIFE on-campus visit.
