Étape 11 sur 11 de la préparation au retour au travail :

Vous pouvez aider votre patient à gérer ses propres attentes et celles de son superviseur en établissant des directives claires dans un plan de retour au travail. Votre patient pourra toujours les consulter au besoin. La fatigue, la douleur ou les problèmes cognitifs dont il peut souffrir sont imperceptibles à son entourage qui peut avoir de la difficulté à les imaginer, voire à les accepter.

Vous pourriez conseiller à votre patient de lire nos conseils sur la communication en milieu de travail, afin qu’il gère mieux les réactions de ses collègues. Parallèlement, vous pourriez éventuellement convenir avec lui des personnes à informer de son cancer, et de la manière de procéder.
