5. Communicate about return to work

Step 5 of 11 in getting ready to return to work:


If the survivor has stopped working because of cancer and treatment, and the return to work process has been initiated, one of the physician’s roles is to guide the survivor, insurance provider and employer in determining the survivor’s work readiness as well as their limitations and restrictions after return to work.
