Training sessions about ‘work and cancer’ are run on a bespoke basis depending on an organisation’s needs.
Some companies choose to arrange 60 minute or 90 minute ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions for their line managers and their HR teams; others prefer to run longer, half-day sessions, or to make them part of wider briefings on health and wellbeing, or employment law.
Typically sessions on work and cancer will cover:
- An overview of working with cancer
- Legal framework – Equality Act
- Talking to an employee and their colleagues about cancer
- Making reasonable adjustments
- Managing an employee’s return to work
- Dealing with bereavement
- Supporting a carer for someone with cancer
The sessions use video materials and interactive case studies developed in association with Macmillan Cancer Support.
