Lymphedema affects 65% of women with breast cancer. Self-management programs (SMPs) are used to manage lymphedema. The study explored the effect of the Remotivation Process on the motivation of 12 women to perform a SMP every day. It was provided through a telehealth platform. Analysis showed significant changes in motivation and outcome measures. This study found that the Remotivation Process is a potentially useful OT intervention to address the motivational needs of women with lymphedema.
