Work and Cancer Survivors / Edition 1

Cancer survivors are returning to the workplace in higher numbers than ever before. This is a positive outcome of the "war on cancer", however, many of these cancer survivors face the possibility of illness- or treatment-related complications; employer discrimination or harassment; and other serious concerns. Work and Cancer Survivors reviews many of the issues relevant to cancer survivors in the workplace from the survivors', employers', and global perspectives. This interdisciplinary volume brings together experts in fields as varied as epidemiology, economics, rehabilitation, psychology, ergonomics, law and public policy to create a unique, up-to-date reference of what is currently known and what needs to be considered in the future. With this knowledge, challenges faced by this growing population can be better addressed by health care providers, employers, survivors and their families.
