Occupational reintegration of long-term cancer survivors.

Author information

Department of General Practice, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.


To determine the long-term psychosocial consequences of cancer related to work, a postal survey was conducted among 849 long-term survivors of cancer in the southwest Netherlands. Forty-four percent of the responders who worked at the time of the diagnosis of cancer returned to their job, 24% of them part-time. Fourteen percent experienced impediments at work after return. Absenteeism in this group does not differ from that in the year prior to the moment of diagnosis. There is a small decrease in promotional and financial prospects.
