The aim of this study was to identify sociodemographic and work-related factors that predict workplace absenteeism, duration of workplace absenteeism, and duration of employment in cancer care workers. This study included 244 cancer care workers employed by Cancer Care Ontario at the Northeastern Ontario Regional Cancer Centre (NEORCC), Sudbury, Ontario, between January 1 st, 1998 and December 31st, 2003.
