Be the Boss Over Cancer

For many patients the most accessible and trusted source of information is a healthcare provider, who is often unprepared to answer questions about working through treatment. Patients who are not offered information on managing work issues associated with their cancer are four times more likely to report that their work life has suffered because of their cancer.

Cancer and Careers created the Educational Series for Healthcare Professionals to educate this vital audience on all critical aspects of combining work and treatment.

During the development of the Cancer and Careers Educational Series for Healthcare Professionals, CAC conducted a registrant needs assessment survey. In addition to providing valuable content guidance, the survey results confirmed the need to equip Healthcare Professionals with credible information developed specifically for them – in fact 79% of respondents said their patients with cancer ask for guidance on working through treatment. AND 97% of participants from the 2009 sessions said that the information they received could be used in their day-to-day interactions with their patients.
