NIHR Post Doctoral Fellowship


Development of a conceptual model and intervention to promote sustained, long-term physical activity after cancer

Funder: National Institute of Health Research

Chief Investigator: Dr Chloe Grimmett

Dr Chloe Grimmett has been awarded a Fellowship by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The NIHR supports research from bench to bedside for the benefit of patients and the economy, finding new ways of preventing, identifying and treating ill health.

Physical inactivity costs the NHS in excess of £1billion a year and studies suggest cancer survivors are less active than those without a history of the disease, making them an important population for targeted interventions to increase activity levels.

Over this five year (2017 – 2021) fellowship Chloe intends to develop a conceptual model to increase our understanding of physical activity behaviour change in this population, and develop an intervention to promote sustained, long-term physical activity after cancer.
