Dr Cecilie Kiserud - Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway

Dr Kiserud speaks with ecancer at ESMO 2017 about the barriers to cancer survivors returning to work.

She reports on results from a survey of cancer survivors from multiple disease types, in which certain factors were found to be consistent barriers to resuming their previous employment. 

Among these Dr Kiserud notes non-Hodgkin lymphoma as a disease with the lowest proportion of patients returning to work, possibly due to secondary disease and long-term side effects, and that there was a difference between men and women returning to work.
