Using Exercise to Relieve Arthralgia (Joint Pain) and Improve AI Adherence in Older Survivors (REJOIN): A Pilot Study

Briefly, the purpose of this study is to use a self-management approach (combining education and exercise) to help older breast cancer survivors manage joint pain, a common side effect of aromatase inhibitors (AIs), a medication used to reduce hormones that might increase risk of recurrence and mortality following primary cancer treatment. We believe that reducing joint pain might help survivors take their medication longer and thus improve survival outcomes, compared to standard care.

Attend 4 in person visits, blood will be drawn at each visit.Complete physical function tests and surveys.Wear accelerometer for 7 days following each visit.Randomly selected participants will attend group exercise sessions twice a week for eight weeks via video call and record exercise activities between visits.
