Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Cancer is a chronic disease that impacts function, and OT can help these individuals re-engage in meaningful occupations. This exploratory study evaluated occupational performance challenges identified by women impacted by cancer and their relationship to demographics. Results showed that challenges were identified in all areas of occupation and that age, race, and medications did not impact occupational challenges, highlighting a need for OT to intervene in this population across demographics.
