Bioethics Quarterly 2 (4):237-244 (1980)
The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the Reach to Recovery Program of volunteers sponsored by the American Cancer Society. Effectiveness was defined as enhancing the quality of life and rehabilitation of women who had had a mastectomy, through increasing knowledge of rehabilitative procedures, post-surgery activities and level of self-esteem.The investigation was held in twelve community hospitals in Northeastern Massachusetts. Results of the investigation are reported here. It is recommended that post-operative teaching regarding proper management of rehabilitation procedures should be increased and that Reach to Recovery should be available to every woman who has a mastectomy
