Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This study provides support for client-centered perceived function evaluation tools compared to nonindividualized physical function assessment to assess breast cancer survivors' function. The COPM detected 30 to 39% perceived impairment (PI) in self-care, 40 to 44% PI in productive activities, and 40 to 47% PI in leisure activities. The DASH detected approximately 8% more physical function impairments and symptoms than the general population (17.8 vs 10.1).
