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 https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /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 https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:28125 Wed 11 Apr 2018 16:38:54 AEST ]]> Associations between psychological distress and the most concerning present personal problems among working-age men in Japan https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:28124 Wed 11 Apr 2018 16:36:34 AEST ]]> Ongoing care and follow-up behavior of working age Japanese with hepatitis C virus https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:19427 Wed 11 Apr 2018 15:35:06 AEST ]]> Mistrust surrounding vaccination recommendations by the Japanese government: results from a national survey of working-age individuals https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:22808 Wed 11 Apr 2018 15:09:14 AEST ]]> Influenza vaccination uptake among the working age population of Japan: results from a national cross-sectional survey https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:14946 Wed 11 Apr 2018 15:02:05 AEST ]]> Declining rates of tobacco use in the Japanese medical profession, 1965-2009 https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:16079 Wed 11 Apr 2018 14:42:04 AEST ]]> Work content and serious mental illness among middle-aged men: results from a 6-year longitudinal study in Japan https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:21019 Wed 11 Apr 2018 12:54:19 AEST ]]> Wearing face masks in public during the influenza season may reflect other positive hygiene practices in Japan https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:15153 Wed 11 Apr 2018 10:24:47 AEST ]]> Sociodemographic factors and prejudice toward HIV and hepatitis B/C status in a working-age population: results from a national, cross-sectional study in Japan https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:16826 Wed 11 Apr 2018 09:26:38 AEST ]]> Occupational differences in suicide mortality among Japanese men of working age https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:24096 Wed 09 Feb 2022 15:54:34 AEDT ]]> Reluctance to care for patients with HIV or hepatitis B / C in Japan https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:24557 Wed 02 Mar 2022 14:28:54 AEDT ]]> HIV testing and attitudes among the working-age population of Japan: annual health checkups may offer an effective way forwards https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:30255 Thu 13 Jan 2022 10:29:08 AEDT ]]> Hepatitis screening in Japanese individuals of working age and prejudice against infected persons in the workplace https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:28608 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:38:56 AEDT ]]> Barriers to the acceptance of work colleagues infected with Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C in Japan https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:29344 Mon 08 Apr 2019 14:51:12 AEST ]]> A socio-demographic examination of adults responding to governmental vaccination recommendations during the Japanese rubella outbreak of 2013 https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:24722 Mon 06 Jul 2020 08:58:56 AEST ]]>
