Methods: We conducted an online, cross-sectional survey of 3710 employed Japanese individuals of working age. Colleagues' perceptions of RTW opportunities for cancer survivors were examined (using a Japanese questionnaire), along with workplace factors such as job demand, job control and workplace social support (using the Brief Job Stress Questionnaire). Associations between workplace factors and RTW opportunities were evaluated using multiple logistic regression analysis, with participants stratified in tertiles (low, middle and high) according to their levels of workplace social support and job control. Results: Colleagues' perceptions of inadequate RTW opportunities were associated with low workplace social support (middle tertile: Odds Ratio [OR] 1.22, 95% Confidence Interval [CI] : 1.08-1.36; low tertile: OR 1.43, 95%CI: 1.30-1.57; p for trend < 0.01); low levels of job control (middle tertile: OR 1.27, 95%CI: 1.06-1.50; low tertile: OR 1.91, 95%CI: 1.64-2.21; p for trend < 0.01); and no prior experience working with a cancer survivor (OR 2.08, 95%CI: 1.83-2.31). Conclusions: This study suggests that workplace factors and prior experience of working with a cancer survivor may affect a colleagues' perception of RTW opportunities in Japanese workplaces. Consideration of workplace social factors (workplace support and job control), as well as increased openness and awareness of the particular needs of cancer survivors, is therefore essential to facilitate successful RTW in Japan, as elsewhere.]]> Wed 17 Nov 2021 16:29:12 AEDT ]]> Socioeconomic status and self-reported health among middle-aged Japanese men: results from a nationwide longitudinal study /manager/Repository/uon:27654 Wed 11 Apr 2018 17:22:30 AEST ]]> Assessing the impact of nationwide smoking cessation interventions among employed, middle-aged Japanese men, 2005-2010 /manager/Repository/uon:28125 Wed 11 Apr 2018 16:38:54 AEST ]]> Work content and serious mental illness among middle-aged men: results from a 6-year longitudinal study in Japan /manager/Repository/uon:21019 Wed 11 Apr 2018 12:54:19 AEST ]]>
