    This chapter is concerned with the relationships among cancer survivorship, working life, and wellbeing. It presents a narrative review of the evidence published on this important subject within the framework of the person × environment model, exploring the Accommodation Adaptation Intervention Paradigm being developed by the authors through the METIS Collaboration in the United Kingdom. The focus is on the psychological, social, and organizational issues involved across the patient journey. The review suggests that there is still much to be understood about the successful maintenance of working life in those with cancer and about the respective roles of the key stakeholders, including employing organizations. However, there is much that can be achieved, based on the existing evidence, particularly in relation to the interactions among the stakeholders. Furthermore, what is being learnt here may logically be applied to managing other chronic conditions in relation to working life and wellbeing.
