This training, co-hosted by Triage Cancer & Cancer and Careers, will provide oncology health care professionals with a comprehensive overview of employment, disability insurance, and health insurance issues that may arise for cancer survivors and their caregivers. Issues include the laws and practical strategies for working though treatment, taking time off work for treatment, deciding whether or not to disclose a diagnosis, managing side effects on-the-job, re-entering the job market, and navigating health insurance options and health care reforms. This interactive training will cover relevant research, provide substantive information, and utilize case studies and exercises to demonstrate ways for oncology health care professionals to effectively navigate their patients through these issues.

This FREE training also offers FREE CEUs for social workers and nurses. These CEUs are not part of the overall conference CEUs.
