ABC Radio: Returning to work after cancer

Afternoon everyone,


The ABC Radio show 'Life Matters' hosted a segment today about returning to work after cancer, that is worth listening to. 


Here's the blurb:

More Australians than ever before are surviving cancer, including people of working age. But just how good are we at helping those who have completed cancer treatment to go back to work?


Life Matters talks to radiation oncologist Dr Raghav Murali-Ganesh and Dr Elizabeth Pearson, occupational therapist and Allied Health Researcher at the Peter Mac Cancer Centre, who says employers try their best but sometimes fail to accommodate the needs of those wanting to return to work.


You can listen to the segment online or download the audio file at Talkback: returning to work after cancer.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on it! And what was your own person experience in going back to work? Did you have issues with your employer?
