Work Performance and Cancer: Implications for Employers

Dr. Kimberly Jinnett

The primary objective of this study is to describe self-reported work performance among a sample of employees with cancer.  Employers in particular have an interest in understanding the impact of different chronic conditions and treatment approaches on a variety of work outcomes such as absence, job performance and periods of work disability.  This study focuses on six types of cancer and self-reported productivity outcomes.  These preliminary findings were recently presented at ISPOR May 2016.
