Abstract

Cancer survivors are at risk of comorbidities and mortality, and those living outside of metropolitan areas are particularly susceptible given poorer socioeconomic, health and support resources. As engagement in health behaviours is affected by participants’ autonomous motives, investigation of the motives of cancer survivors in metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas could elucidate the values and reasons for practising health behaviours, allowing programs to be tailored to these motives.
