Learning Objectives:


After you have completed this module, you should be able to:


        Identify the objective and subjective multi-dimensional nature, causes, and symptoms of cancer related fatigue.


        Identify how cancer related fatigue affects occupational performance and engagement.


        Describe the assessments that can be used to identify the effects of CRF on occupational performance and engagement.


        Describe occupational therapy interventions that may decrease the negative impact of CRF on meaningful occupations.


This final module in the cancer series discusses the causes of cancer related fatigue (CRF) and what effect CRF has on occupational participation. You will learn how to assess and evaluate the multiple dimensions of CRF in order to assist with accurate intervention planning.  In addition, you will learn several interventions for managing CRF, including initiating and maintaining adequate levels of physical activity and conserving and managing energy.
