Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Cancer care and oncology is an emerging area of practice in OT. It is imperative to compare current practice trends to the literature that supports evidence-based OT interventions in order to maximize therapeutic outcomes for cancer survivors. Results from this survey research aim to describe how OT practitioners are addressing side effects of survivorship within intervention and compare these practice trends to a systematic review of the literature.
