Self-reported work ability in breast cancer survivors; a prospective cohort study in the Netherlands

In a prospective cohort study, 939 patients <67 years are identified. Employed patients filled out the Work Ability Index (WAI) questionnaire before the start of radiotherapy treatment (baseline) and at 6, 18, and 30 months. Work ability was compared with a matched Dutch cancer-free population (n=3,641). The association between (clinical) characteristics and work ability over time was assessed using mixed-effects models.
