The goal of the study was to evaluate the long-term implications of breast cancer on upper-extremity function, participation, and perceived quality of life among Israeli women and to examine the utilization of OT services in the rehabilitation process. The study included two steps: (1) an online survey and (2) face-to-face in-depth evaluation. Women with breast cancer reported a wide range of impairments that are within the domain of OT, but only a small minority received OT services.
