Constipation is one of the most frequent problems in cancer patients. Preventing and managing this problem requires tests to prove the efficacy of the method. The aim of this study was to identify the evidence for nursing intervention aimed at promoting physical activity. The author consulted various databases ((PubMed, CINAHL, Cochrane Library) in July 2010, to identify studies regarding physical exercise and evacuation and found that, although physical activity is considered useful for preventing stipsis, only a few randomized studied sustain this theory. Current nursing practice is based on the opinion of experts regarding the need to encourage physical activity.
