Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study used the Activity Card Sort (ACS) and the Medical Outcome Short Form 36 (SF-36) to evaluate activity participation and QoL in patients with cGVHD. The positive correlation between the ACS global score and the SF-36 physical component score (PCS) suggests that activity participation is related to physical QoL. OT consultation may improve the QoL of patients with cGVHD by facilitating meaningful activity engagement.
