Appendix A

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will plan and host a 1.5-day public workshop to examine the evidence for providing support for weight management and physical activity as part of routine cancer care. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include

  • Current evidence on associations between obesity and/or physical activity and outcomes in cancer survivorship;
  • Current evidence on the effectiveness of interventions for promoting physical activity, caloric restriction, and weight loss and maintenance among people living with or beyond cancer;
  • Current barriers to providing patients with effective interventions, including resources and support related to diet, exercise, and behavioral counseling, as well as treating more recalcitrant obesity (e.g., pharmacotherapy and bariatric surgery);
  • Strategies to address and overcome barriers to providing weight control interventions (including weight loss in overweight/obese individuals or prevention of weight gain in normal weight individuals) and physical activity support to individuals diagnosed with cancer; and
  • Implementation models and emerging strategies for moving weight management and physical activity interventions into practice, highlighting examples of programs that have demonstrated success.

The National Cancer Policy Forum of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a public workshop, Incorporating Weight Management and Physical Activity Throughout the Cancer Care Continuum, on February 13 and 14, 2017, in Washington, DC. The purpose of this workshop was to highlight the current evidence base, gaps in knowledge, and research needs on the associations among obesity, physical activity, weight management, and health outcomes for cancer survivors, as well as to examine the effectiveness of interventions for promoting physical activity and weight management among people living with or beyond cancer. Workshop sessions also reviewed the opportunities and challenges for providing weight management and physical activity interventions to cancer survivors. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
