Performance objectives Determinants
Awareness Knowledge Attitude Self-efficacy Action planning
1. PCa & CRC CPS monitor their physical activity level Existing: PCa & CRC CPS become aware of their own PA level Old: OA know the PA recommendations and learn how to compare their own PA level with the recommendations    
Existing: PCa & CRC CPS monitor and report their own PA level New: PCa & CRC CPS know the PA recommendations during and after cancer treatment and learn how to compare their own PA level with the recommendations
2. PCa & CRC CPS indicate reasons to be physically active Existing: PCA & CRC CPS become aware of their personally relevant benefits of being sufficiently physically active Existing: PCa & CRC CPS learn about the general health benefits of sufficient PA and can name personal relevant reasons for being sufficiently physically active Existing: PCa & CRC CPS feel positive about being sufficiently physically active   
Added: PCa & CRC CPS learn about health benefits of PA related to cancer and can name personal relevant reasons for being sufficiently physically active
3. PCa & CRC CPS identify solutions to take away the barriers to being physically active Existing: PCa & CRC CPS become aware of situations and barriers that prevent them from being sufficiently physically active Existing: PCa & CRC CPS learn how to identify general difficult situations and learn about solutions that can take away the barriers   Existing: PCa & CRC CPS feel confident about being able to take away and to cope with general barriers  
Added: PCa & CRC CPS learn how to identify cancer-specific difficult situations and learn about solutions that can take away the barriers   Added: PCa & CRC CPS feel confident about being able to take away and cope with cancer-specific barriers
Added: PCA & CRC CPS feel confident about being able to cope with physical complaints due to cancer or cancer-treatment.
5. PCa and CRC CPS make specific plans to become more physically active Existing: PCa & CRC CPS become aware of the importance to make plans to increase their PA Existing: PCa & CRC CPS learn how to make specific plans to increase their PA Existing: PCa & CRC CPS feel positive about making plans to increase their PA Existing: PCA & CRC CPS feel confident about making plans to increase their PA Existing: PCA & CRC CPS make specific plans to increase their PA
Existing: PCA & CRC CPS feel confident in being able to achieve their plans to increase their PA Existing PCA & CRC CPS set goals to increase their PA
