Dear Potential Participant:
The Cancer and Work Website Project Team (see team names below) are creating a website about Return to Work following a cancer experience. The aim of the website is to provide information, resources and tools to cancer survivors, health care providers and employers. The Cancer and Work website project is funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC).
To prioritize the creation and upload of resources for our website, we would appreciate your help identifying the most important topics, tools and resources you think should be included on the RTW website. We also invite you to share the resources you are using to support cancer survivors with their return to work.
We are contacting individuals who are clinicians, cancer survivors, or employers from across Canada to complete this survey. If it happens that you are a cancer survivor and also a health care professional or an employer, we invite you to complete the survey for each of these roles. While some questions will look similar, they address different aims, depending whether you are completing the survey as a clinician, a cancer survivor, or an employer.
It may take approximately 10 minutes to complete the survey. If you have any questions as a survey participant related to the ethics of this survey, you can contact University Health Network Ethics Board at (416)581-7849.
If you have any questions regarding this project please do not hesitate to e-mail the Project leads at:
firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com
