Researchers introduce a unique finding, a cultural shift, that occurs during cancer survivorship. This shift includes “funneling effects, ” such as changes in client factors, changes in perspective, and the experience of distress, all of which influence occupational engagement. Specifically, occupations were either lost, gained, or modified. Understanding the impact a cultural shift has on occupational engagement during survivorship underpins OT’s ability to build client-centered interventions.
