Women with disabilities receive mammograms at lower rates than nondisabled women, and research has shown that these lower rates have not changed over time. Little is known about the barriers women with disabilities face to mammography. This study illuminates the barriers to mammography that collaborative advocacy between OT practitioners and women with disabilities can address as IADLs, along with self-advocacy as intervention and outcome, to improve the health and well-being of women with disabilities.
