Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

HSCT is a lengthy and debilitating cancer treatment. Caregivers of HSCT recipients report distress and reductions in their own self-care. A caregiver wellness intervention based on behavioral activation was developed and implemented in order to assess its feasibility and acceptability. Future research will explore the efficacy of the intervention, which is well-suited for delivery by OTs working in cancer rehabilitation.
