Abstract

In 2022, the International Bone Metastases Exercise Working Group (IBMEWG) released the world’s first clinical exercise recommendations as a guiding framework to support healthcare providers and exercise professionals in delivering safe exercise medicine to people with bone metastases [1]. As an international and interdisciplinary organisation dedicated to quality supportive care for all people affected by cancer, the Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) endorses the IMBEWG produced clinical exercise recommendations, supported by MASCC Exercise Oncology and MASCC Survivorship Study Groups. Specifically, these recommendations provide an important resource for clinicians and people with bone metastases globally, which can be readily implemented in low-to-middle resource countries, thus supporting the World Health Organisations’ Package of Interventions for Rehabilitation (Cancer) that is being released to all 190 WHO member health ministry’s later this year, that were also co-developed by authors NHH, DMP, and MIF as representatives of MASCC.
