Survived but feeling vulnerable and insecure: a qualitative study of the mental preparation for RTW after breast cancer treatment Full Text
BMC Public Health, 07/31/2012
Tiedtke C et al. – These study demonstrated that mental preparation for RTW is not a linear process of improvement. It shows a detailed picture of four types of considerations made by breast cancer survivors before they actually resume work. Vulnerability appears to be an overarching theme during mental preparation. As the social environment plays an important role, people from that environment must become more aware of their influence on decreasing or increasing a woman's vulnerability while preparing for RTW.
