The goal of the study was to evaluate the long-term implications of breast cancer (BC) on upper extremity function, participation, and perceived quality of life (QoL) among Israeli women and examine the utilization of OT services in the rehabilitation process. The study included two steps: (1) an online survey and (3) face-to-face in-depth evaluation. Women with BC reported a wide range of impairments that are within the domain of OT, but only a small minority received OT services.
