I-KNOW-HOW 'working with cancer'

The overall objective of I-KNOW-HOW is to facilitate people who receive a diagnosis of cancer to remain or return to work by co-creating and piloting new services for (i) employers, (ii) employees, (iii) (para)medical professionals and (iv) job coaches. By means of these innovative services we intend to increase the percentage of people with cancer who remain or return to work by 15% and we will shorten the period that the employee is absent of work given the right adaptions by the employer and with support from a job coach and the (para)medical team. For the 2seas area, this implicates that 4.889 extra people with cancer will remain or return to work. These return-to-work programmes will reduce the costs for both employers and government substantially.
