This study explored the relationship between participation and quality of life (QOL) in transplant survivors with cGVHD. Participants lost nearly 30% of their global participation following the onset of cGVHD. Losses were especially notable in high-demand leisure activities. Retained global activity was associated with better physical and mental QOL. OTs can play a key role in promoting participation and well-being among persons with cGVHD.
