Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

A concurrent mixed-method study of 10 breast cancer survivors showed that extrinsic factors seem to influence participation in important activities more than do intrinsic factors. Instrumental and social activities were 75% of important activities. Survivors retained more instrumental and low-demand activities.
