Overview of the STAMINA programme

A genuine opportunity exists to improve the quality of life of men with prostate cancer on androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) but robust ‘real-world’ research is crucial to inform NHS practice. Finding ways of supporting men on ADT to take up and continue exercising is essential to reduce side-effects of treatment, which can include severe fatigue, loss of strength and increased fat-mass. See below to find out how the STAMINA intervention can support men on ADT. 


STAMINA is a five year research project funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in the UK. The programme is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of a long term supported exercise intervention in men with advanced prostate cancer who have undergone medical castration with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT).
