The Exercise Harms Reporting Method (ExHaRM)

The Exercise Harms Reporting Method (ExHaRM) is a protocol for the monitoring and reporting of adverse events.

The protocol has been refined through an iterative process of implementation and adjustment since it was first developed in 2015. Since then it has been successfully implemented in multiple exercise oncology trialsĀ  involving samples with different cancer types (breast, brain and gynaecological), different stages of disease at diagnosis (stage I-IV), primary and recurrent diagnoses, and inclusion of samples with multiple comorbidities.
