Lived Experiences of Adolescents in the Treatment Process of Cancer and the Impact of Occupations
This study will explore the following research questions: 1. How do adolescent patients in
the treatment process of cancer perceive and describe their experience of engaging in
occupational routines? 2. What effect does the treatment process of cancer have on an
adolescent's ability to participate in life situations such as creating and maintaining
relationships with family, friends, peers, students, or people with similar backgrounds?
By doing this study, researchers hope to gain information so that occupational therapists
can increase the profession's present body of knowledge and better understand these
individuals at a transitional period in their lives.
