Are survivors of childhood cancer with an unfavourable psychosocial developmental trajectory more likely to apply for disability benefits

Psycho-Oncology, 04/20/2012

Childhood cancer survivors (CCS) with an unfavourable developmental trajectory while growing up were more likely to apply for disability benefits in adulthood than CCS with a more favourable development. Early recognition and support are warranted. Further research is needed on risk factors of application for disability benefits. In addition, research should show whether stimulating the achievement of developmental milestones while growing up will create conditions for a better labour market position.
