Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study investigated the impact of a short-term occupation-based program on pain, fatigue, and occupational performance of women with cancer that took place over one week. Activities focused on physical, emotional, sensory, and social aspects of functioning. The study demonstrated that participation in this one-week program decreases pain and fatigue and improves occupational performance and satisfaction for women with cancer living in the community.
