Abstract

Objective: The aim of this review was to evaluate studies on the effectiveness of an exercise intervention in reducing fatigue in gynaecology cancer patients.
Methods: The review was conducted according to the Preferred Reporting Items Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines. The quality assessment was completed using the Critical Appraisal Skills Program (CASP). The search databases used were CINAHL (2003 - 2017), MEDLINE (1946 - 2017), EMBASE (1980 - 2017), PsycINFO (1806 - 2017), and Cochrane Library.
Results: Five studies met the inclusion criteria; three randomized controlled trials and two single-arm trials. Three studies suggested that exercise interventions reduced fatigue in gynaecological cancer patients and two studies suggested improvement in other measurements, however not for fatigue. Studies concluded that exercise interventions improve physical fitness.
Conclusion: There is some evidence that exercise interventions result in significant reductions of fatigue, in gynaecological cancer survivors. However, the current evidence is limited; only three randomised controlled trials have been conducted. Hence, further studies are required which need to address the dose-dependent response of exercise interventions on fatigue in gynaecological cancer populations.
