Remain in or return to work after the diagnosis of cancer.

  • Information service tool
  • Job coaching service
  • Coaching service for employers

The overall objective of I‑KNOW‑HOW is to facilitate people who receive a diagnosis of cancer to remain in or return to work by co-creating and piloting new services for:

  • Employers
  • Employees
  • (Para)medical professionals
  • Job coaches

By means of these innovative services, we intend to increase the percentage of people with cancer who remain in or return to work by 15% and we will shorten the period that the employee is absent from work, given the right adaptions by the employer, and with support from a job coach and their medical team.

For the 2seas area, this means that 4,889 extra people with cancer will remain in or return to work. These return-to-work programmes will reduce the costs for both employers and government substantially.
