Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

The purpose of this qualitative phenomenological study was to gain a deeper understanding of attitudes, beliefs, and personal experiences about reproductive decision making and its influence on QOL from the perspective of those with HD and their spouses. OTs are uniquely trained to evaluate and provide interventions based on client factors that may impact health, well-being, and participation in occupations. Implications for OT were discussed.
