Medical Advice For The Villagers – Part 2 of 2
Cancer survivors in country areas were 33 percent less likely than those in cities to go on paid disability while receiving cancer treatment, according to a journal news release. This is qualified because the types of manual labor jobs common in rural areas rarely offer disability benefits. It’s crucial for doctors to understand the financial effects that a cancer diagnosis can have on bucolic dwellers, who account for 20 percent of the US population, the study authors said.
So “Providers who care for rural patients must recognize that these patients may be at an increased risk for financial impact. Cancer safe keeping for these patients should incorporate counseling services related to returning to work after active treatment and assistance related to disability explained here. It is possible that survivorship programs could lead this charge, with business counseling becoming a standard part of this post-treatment phase of care”.
