A new study published in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship analyzes barriers to employment for rural female cancer survivors. The study found that rural women are more likely to face significant challenges finding secure and reliable employment following cancer treatment if they did not already have a secure job at the time of diagnosis.
“Employment offers important benefits, from financial stability to improved mental health, but many cancer survivors struggle to return to work or to work full-time after cancer treatment,” said Emily Hallgren, Ph.D., with the UAMS Office of Community Health and Research. “Given the important benefits of work for individuals, families and society, it’s important to understand what keeps cancer survivors from working after cancer treatment as well as what helps them succeed in the workforce.”
