Introduction: Achievement to a model for facilitation of returning to work in female breast cancer survivors is high importance. Hence, the current study aimed to develop a better understanding of the return to work after breast cancer concept and developing a model for facilitation of return to work in female breast cancer survivors.
Methods: This study is a metasynthesis research, which implemented by Noblit and Hare method on 15 qualitative studies. Databases of Scopus, Science Direct, Pub Med, Google Scholar, SID, and Magiran were used for accessing to these studies. Then, related qualitative studies, including the criteria for the data validity were selected. In the following, their themes were extracted and pooled. The similarities and differences between them were used for the analysis and reduction the categories in the next stage, and then main themes were identified and integrated.
Results: Return-to-work model after breast cancer consisted of five constructs, including communication pattern, supporting system, expects, limitations and coping. Various constructs of this model can have the facilitator or barrier roles in the return-to-work process.
Conclusion: According to developed model in this research, the impact of model constructs, including communication pattern, supporting system, expects and limitations on each other, can lead to cope with and facilitate returning to work in female breast cancer survivors.
