To estimate the cost-utility of our aerobic exercise intervention, we will assess costs associated with the intervention itself (e.g., recreational facility membership, personal trainer time, equipment), physical activity engaged in during the maintenance phase, and healthcare resource utilization. Using provincial administrative databases, costs of pharmaceuticals, primary care physician visits, emergency room visits, and hospitalizations will be calculated. We will use the EuroQoL Five-Dimension Five-Level Quality of Life Scale (EQ-5D-5L [9092];) to measure the quality of life. The scores will be translated into utilities using the Canadian social value set [93].
