Support for men with cancer at work

Men living with cancer need more support to stay in or return to work, according to nursing experts.

A new project by the Royal College of Nursing, the European Men’s Health Forum (EMHF) and Ulster University aims to harness nursing expertise to help men with cancer to stay in or return to work after treatment.

The project will produce a manual for nursing staff so they can help male cancer patients to return to work, should they wish to.

It can also be used by nurses working with employers and managers to help them support their employees effectively during this time.
