Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

OT provided to acute palliative care (APC) clients with cancer follows an impairment-driven approach. Occupation-based problems (OBP) and COPM performance and satisfaction score changes are described among 10 clients. Self-care OBP were more common than productive and leisure. Fifty percent of the clients experienced significant COPM performance and satisfaction score changes, suggesting clients may benefit from an occupation-based approach within APC.
