Étape 5 sur 11 de la préparation au retour au travail :

 

Lorsque le survivant amorce son retour au travail après un arrêt attribuable au cancer et au traitement associé, le médecin, tout comme l’assureur et l’employeur, joue un rôle primordial pour déterminer s’il est prêt à reprendre le travail et pour établir ses limites et ses restrictions une fois en poste. Le fournisseur de santé peut aussi lui recommander des interventions visant à renforcer son état de l’employé, ou des soutiens pour améliorer ses chances de conserver son emploi en toute sécurité. Pour obtenir plus de ressources, consultez nos pages sur la communication lors du retour au travail et sur la communication avec votre équipe de soins, dans la section de notre site Web destinée aux survivants.
