Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Advanced cancer affects the ability to manage occupations. The purpose of this study was to describe how people with advanced cancer manage occupations, using qualitative descriptive design, semistructured interviews with 73 participants, and content analysis. Self-developed strategies enabled independence.
