Evidence-Based Approaches for Optimizing Employment Outcomes among Cancer Survivors Workshop
On August 11 & 12, 2016, the Healthcare Delivery Research Program hosted a workshop to articulate a research agenda for optimizing work outcomes among cancer survivors. This workshop convened a multidisciplinary group of 29 individuals with collective expertise in oncology, cancer care delivery, cancer survivorship, rehabilitation, work disability, employment law, employee benefits and workplace wellness.
The final report from this workshop is currently under development.
|9:00–9:30||Introduction and welcome remarks|
|9:30–10:45||Reflecting on the meeting preparation|
What observational research is needed to address a broad range of work limitations among cancer patients and survivors?
What types of interventions are needed to prevent and/or mitigate work limitations among cancer patients and survivors?
|3:35–4:45||Wrap-up Day 1|
|8:30–9:00||Welcome and Day 1 Recap|
If the goal is to develop survivor-, provider- and employer-based interventions to address work limitations among cancer survivors, how do we get there?
What is the most important direction this field needs to go and what is the most actionable way to get there?
|12:00–12:30||Wrap up for day 2, discuss next steps|
