Impact of Cancer on Work and Education Among Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivors
Journal of Clinical Oncology, 05/24/2012
Parsons HM et al. – Although most adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients with cancer return to work after cancer, treatment intensity, not having insurance, and quitting work/school directly after diagnosis can influence work/educational outcomes. Future research should investigate underlying causes for these differences and best practices for effective transition of these cancer survivors to the workplace/school after treatment.
