This investigation aims to assess the degree of efficacy of a breast cancer rehabilitation program in Ecuador. To this end, a group of experts evaluated the efficacy of the program using the Delphi method. Once experts were rigorously selected, they used a linguistic scale for assessing the program in different aspects. Every element of the linguistic scale was associated with a neutrosophic number, and finally statistically processed. The advantage to use neutrosophy is the possibility to deal with the imprecision in the assessment and to count on a linguistic scale, which undoubtedly usually is more appropriate to express opinions than a numerical one.
