About the Webinar

Nearly a quarter of cancer survivors report changes to their employment situation. Physical, emotional, psychosocial, practical and/or occupational difficulties may arise along with an increased incidence of workplace discrimination, unemployment and involuntary retirement. We will be discussing communication in the workplace to work towards minimising any negative circumstances.
