Brief Summary:
This study is testing a walking program called Walk with Ease by the Arthritis Foundation with men undergoing treatment for prostate cancer. The researchers are interested in how easy or difficult it is for these men to participate in this program and whether or not is is helpful to them during their care.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Prostate Cancer Behavioral: Walk with Ease

Detailed Description:

Purpose: This pilot study evaluates the feasibility of implementing a moderate-intensity physical activity (PA) program in a sample of men age 65 or older with a prostate cancer diagnosis undergoing various forms of treatment or active surveillance.

Participants: Men, 65 and older, with a prostate cancer diagnosis.

Procedures (methods): This study will enroll subjects in a 6 week walking program called Walk with Ease (WWE) and see if walking can be sustained for up to three months. In addition, the study will perform a Geriatric Assessment and gather preliminary data on self-reported quality of life outcomes and self-reported physical activity as captured in a daily walking log.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To measure the feasibility of implementing the WWE intervention among men age >65 with a prostate cancer diagnosis [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Exploring the evaluate the feasibility of implementing the WWE intervention among men age >65 with a prostate cancer diagnosis. The study will measure those who were able to complete the program and increased their self-reported level of walking. The study will also measure the percent of patients who reach the goal of walking 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week in order to determine feasibility.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Measure the rate of completion for study surveys [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

    To evaluate the rate of completion of each of the following measures/assessments at 3 different time points -- baseline, 6 weeks (end of WWE intervention), and 3 months (follow-up):

    • Self-reported walking log
    • Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-General (FACT-G)25
    • Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue26
    • Outcome Expectations for Exercise (OEE) scale27
    • Perceived Self-Efficacy for Fatigue Self-Management (PSEFSM)28,29
    • Visual Analog Scales (VAS) for Pain, Fatigue and Stiffness30-32
    • PROMIS Pain Interference Short Form 6b33-35
    • BRFSS Questionnaire 2011 -Health Behaviors Questionnaire (HBQ)36
    • Geriatric Assessment (GA) (Version 5)


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Use primary data to design future studies [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    To explore data from the measures/assessments (summary measures at each time point and mean changes at 6 weeks and 3 months) to inform future studies designed to evaluate associations between the WWE program and these variables.
