Both the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer and Young Adult Cancer Canada rapport that returning to work is one of the biggest concerns for patients post-treatment. Over the last nine years, we’ve been running the “Rebalancing life and work after cancer” program, a group to support and help patients in figuring out the answer to the question “What now?” This webinar, aimed to both patients and professionals, shines a light on some of the things that can help facilitate a successful return to work that is focused on inclusion and understanding in the workplace. We will cover topics such as coping with treatment side effects that can affect work life, identifying strategies for returning to work and handling communication and questions from colleagues and loved ones. We’ll also focus on learning from our differences by having a client share their story on work following cancer and also explore how a reflective exercise we’ve given our clients helped them in identifying some of their past accomplishments and values and uncovering what was key for them in life and work moving forward.
