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.
