The SIRIC ILIAD Nantes-Angers (Integrated Cancer Research Site) was certified in December 2017, and since then has been developing 3 research programmes on breast cancer and multiple myeloma. One programme in particular, the ReWork-QoL programme, is dedicated to return to work after cancer and quality of life. One of its objectives is to predict and evaluate the return to work after therapy, in order to facilitate professional reintegration.
