Seton Hall > News & Events 

Occupational TherapyMeryl Picard, doctoral student at Seton Hall University, is conducting a study which explores the two most common problems that affect some women after breast cancer surgery and treatment: cancer fatigue and arm symptoms. The purpose of the study is to understand women’s experiences with these problems that might interfere with their ability to complete daily life activities that they want to do or have to do.

At this time there is limited understanding of the relationship between these two problem areas.

Your responses to the survey are very important, even if you are not experiencing any of these problems at the present time. You may participate in this research if you:

  • Are between 18 – 65 years old
  • Can read English and have access to the Internet
  • Have had a diagnosis of breast cancer, Stage 0 – III (please, no metastasis or Stage IV)
  • Completed all your surgery, radiation or chemotherapy a minimum of 1 year ago (greater than 12 months) and less than 6 years ago (less than 72 months).

The questions will only take 15 minutes to complete. Your responses are completely voluntary and will be kept confidential. This is a completely anonymous survey. Please do not complete the survey again if you responded earlier this year.
