Return to paid work after cancer: A British experience

Return to paid work after cancer: A British experience While a high proportion of respondents managed to return to their place of work 20% were not able to do so. The duration of sick leave absence was associated with more difficulties in returning to work. Despite the fact that males were more likely than females to take no sick leave, they were more likely to take longer periods of absence when they did (18 months and over). In addition, the length of sick leave was greatest in the most economically deprived group, and in those survivors of cancer diagnosis and treatment who did not receive surgery. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Cancer Survivorship: Research and Practice Springer Journals

Abstract

While a high proportion of respondents managed to return to their place of work 20% were not able to do so. The duration of sick leave absence was associated with more difficulties in returning to work. Despite the fact that males were more likely than females to take no sick leave, they were more likely to take longer periods of absence when they did (18 months and over). In addition, the length of sick leave was greatest in the most economically deprived group, and in those survivors of cancer diagnosis and treatment who did not receive surgery.
