Common challenge

Improvements in detection and treatment are resulting in increasing numbers of cancer survivors, as survival rates have risen to 70% (1) while mortality rates are dropping (2). As 50% of people diagnosed with cancer are of working age (3), the link between cancer and employment should receive more attention (4). Employment is crucial for people with cancer to fully reintegrate with society, as it provides income, social contact, structure and strengthens feelings of control (5). Research shows that only 62% of people with cancer re-enter the workplace within two years after the diagnosis (1). Cancer patients are 1.4 times more likely to be unemployed than healthy people (6). Currently there is a lack of support for employers and employees are often unable to navigate services that enable them to remain or return to work. I-KNOWHOW will address this by creating new user led services for employers, employees, (para)medical professionals and job coaches.
