TIME TO ACT: THE CHALLENGES OF WORKING DURING AND AFTER CANCER ~ INITIATIVES IN RESEARCH AND PRACTICE
The CANWORK Group has had an editorial published on the challenges of working during and after cancer in the European Journal of Oncology Nursing. The editorial makes the important point that health care professionals, employers and occupational health services could and should do more to recognise the challenges faced by those with cancer in relation to work and support them in achieving their work related goals. This message is one which is central to the work of the CANWORK Group and is also one of the central beliefs of the METIS Collaboration. The journal’s impact factor is: 1.685 with a 5 Year impact factor of: 1.935. The paper can be accessed at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ejon.2014.01.001. and cited as:
