What can time allocation tell us about cancer recovery?
Return to work is considered as a main indicator of cancer recovery. This approach omits that women are main contributors ofunpaid work, and they may engage in leisure which is crucial in the recovery journey. Moreover, return to work is considered ata single time point, leaving employment trajectories unknown. To provide a comprehensive picture of cancer recovery, thisstudy will use time allocation to link paid work, unpaid work and leisure activities. The study will investigate: (i) time allocationacross paid work, unpaid work and leisure activities after cancer treatment; (ii) how time allocation impacts health serviceusage; and iii) dynamic changes in employment after cancer treatment.
