Fiona Adsheard, chief well-being and public health officer at BUPA, a global health and care company, explains the ways in which her company is working to help both employers and employees deal with the practical issues of cancer survivors returning to work. Adsheard states that only one-third of people with cancer return to work, but the number of those who wish to return is much higher.
Adsheard explains that 96% of breast cancer survivors surveyed stated they valued job distraction. However, many expressed a need for help in terms of rights, flexibility, and attacking the cancer stigma. "We need to take it down to the practical level of what to advise employers to do" Adsheard states,"there are no big barriers, it's more about the practical everyday things that can make a big difference".
