The aim of this COST Action is to integrate emerging knowledge on cancer and work to achieve insight into the return-to-work process in cancer survivors, work-related costs of cancer survivorship, and the role of employers as well as to develop and evaluate innovative interventions which effectively enhance work participation of cancer patients. CANWON aims to bring together experts in cancer and work participation, oncology, occupational health, economics, epidemiology, psychology, and social sciences.
COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is one of the longest-running European frameworks supporting cooperation among scientists and researchers across Europe.
