Cognitive, psychosocial, somatic and treatment factors predicting return to work after breast cancer treatment
Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, 08/17/2012
Hedayati E et al. – Chemotherapy is associated with longer periods of sick leave. Cognitive functions do not predict return to work (RTW). Independently of any adjuvant therapy, most women eventually RTW in a few months. The ability to predict RTW after Breast cancer (BC) treatment should help prepare higher–risk patients for delayed RTW and allow earlier interventions to restore their social relations and quality of life.
