Brain cancer impacts a person's participation in everyday activities

What is it about?

Brain cancer typically limits a person's life-expectancy. This research aimed to identify how brain cancer impacted a person. Findings showed that brain cancer and its treatments can have a major impact on a person, subsequently limiting their participation by impacting their ability to complete everyday activities, and causing the need for continual adjustment to their physical decline.

Why is it important?

Findings show a strong need to address both brain cancer symptoms and the treatment side effects, and the need to better target services to our clients needs.
