Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

In this study, we describe the Valued Life Activities Scale to measure importance and difficulty with occupations in persons with scleroderma and factors related to difficulty with performance. Obligatory occupations (e.g., self-care) were more important, but committed occupations (e.g., housework) were more difficult.
