FERNANDES, Carla Sílvia; MAGALHAES, Bruno Miguel Borges de Sousa; SANTOS, Célia de Brito  y  MARTINEZ GALIANO, Juan Miguel. Walking as an intervention during chemotherapy: integrative review. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2018, vol.serIV, n.17, pp.119-130. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV17068.

Background: Walking has been used as a health promotion and symptom relief intervention in patients with cancer during chemotherapy. Objective: To map the existing literature on the use of walking as an intervention in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Methodology: Integrative review of articles found in MEDLINE® and CINAHL® databases. The review protocol was designed and the thematic categorization was performed. Results: Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, 12 primary studies published between 2010 and 2017 were considered for analysis. Five relevant thematic areas were identified: duration, frequency, and monitoring of walking during chemotherapy; adherence to the walking intervention; effects on psychological and physical symptoms; target population; and assessment tools. Conclusion: Despite the advantages of the walking intervention during chemotherapy, evidence on its use as a nursing intervention is still scarce, with further research being required in this area.
