Cancer recovery and return to work

Cancer recovery and return to work

A Cochrane systematic review (18 studies) found moderate quality evidence that multidisciplinary interventions combining physical exercises with patient education, counselling, biofeedback-assisted behavioural training, and/or vocational counselling benefited patients returning to work after cancer. Neither psychological interventions alone (moderate evidence) nor physical training alone (very low quality evidence) improve return to work.
