Participants needed for study on returning to work post-treatmentJuly 7, 2015
Have you completed your cancer treatment and taken a leave of absence from work?
Would you like to share your thoughts and opinions on your plans to return to work?
The Nova Scotia Health Authority is conducting a study on cancer survivors’ views on returning to work following cancer treatment.
They are looking to interview patients who have completed their primary treatment for cancer and are preparing to return to work. Participants are asked to participate in three separate interviews with a researcher in the Nova Scotia Health Authority. These interviews will be conducted face-to-face or via telephone. Each interview will last approximately one hour.
The first interview will take place after the end of primary treatment. The second and third interviews will take place at three months and at nine months after the first interview.
To take part in this study, you must meet the following criteria:
- Completing primary treatment within the ensuing month or have ended primary treatment in the past three months, which may have consisted of surgery, radiotherapy, and/or chemotherapy.
- Have taken a leave of absence from paid employment because of your cancer diagnosis and/or treatment with an intention to return to work.
- Survivors of all cancer types are eligible.
- Survivors with active disease post-primary treatment are eligible for participation in this study if their cancer is being managed as a chronic condition and they meet the above criteria.
