Supporting Return to Employment after Cancer in Disadvantaged Communities

Information and support regarding return to work (RTW) after cancer remains an unmet need for cancer survivors, health professionals and employers.  Disadvantaged communities are likely to be particularly vulnerable as a result of limited employment options, more limited work skills and limited access to cancer care.  The aim of this project was to improve return to work of cancer survivors by developing resources to support survivors RTW, with a particular emphasis on disadvantaged communities. We have developed a resource to support work after cancer that providers tailored information for people with cancer, health care providers and employers.
