  • Disclosing a diagnosis        
  • Managing expectations
  • Coping with side effects at work
  • Taking leave
  • Managing discrimination, bullying and harassment

- Transition back into the workforce after a period off work for treatment.

  • Reviewing CVs
  • Role - playing interviews
  • Connecting with recruitment services
