Cancer in the workplace

Cancer is one of New Zealand's leading causes of illness and death. Knowing what to do and say to people who have been diagnosed with cancer can be difficult.

Typical reactions may include shock, disbelief, and concern for the person, but colleagues may experience a wide range of emotions.

The Cancer Society has put together an information sheet which provides advice on how to help an employee or workmate with cancer.
