This exploratory study found frailty and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) performance worsen for head and neck cancer patients after radiation treatment. A moderate negative correlation was identified between frailty status and IADL performance. This conclusion indicates a need for OT services to address and reduce functional deficits in this population.
