In November 2020 the ActWELL study team invited participants, BCN Lifestyle Coaches, NHS breast screening staff and leisure centre staff to attend an online event to learn about the results. At that time the results of the study were still confidential as the scientific paper had not been through peer review yet. The paper has been published since then and we can now share the recording of the event.
The recording of the online event has been split into two sections. In part one you will hear about the background to the study, details of the intervention and the role of the Breast Cancer Now Lifestyle Coaches. In part two, the ActWELL Chief Investigator presents the results of the ActWELL study.
