◆Guidebook for doctors to create a medical certificate for cancer patients to claim disability pension
It is no exaggeration to say that a doctor’s certificate is required to claim a disability pension, and the receipt of benefits is determined by the contents of the certificate. However, the medical certificate for disability pension is extremely complicated and requires a huge amount of time and effort to prepare.
Therefore, Cancer Net Japan has appointed Professor Noriyuki Katsumata, a medical oncologist (Department of Medical Oncology, Nippon Medical University Musashi-Kosugi Hospital), and Professor Yoshinobu Kanda, a hematologist (Department of Hematology, Jichi Medical University Hospital/Saitama Medical Center) as supervisors. In order to reduce the burden on doctors, we have compiled a guidebook on how to write a medical certificate. We give case studies of blood cancer patients and ovarian cancer patients, and introduce points and tips for writing medical certificates.
We have sent this to cancer partner hospitals and hematology departments so that it can be used not only by doctors but also by medical social workers and other medical professionals who are involved in disability pension claims for cancer patients. If you cooperate with the survey regarding this guidebook, we will basically send you 15 copies for each facility (hospital) free of charge (until the end of November 2024).
The full text of the guidebook is also available on the website.

-Seminar details/application-https://www.cancernet.jp/online240618 ◆“About disability pension” website released
Disability pension cannot be received unless the patient claims it himself. Therefore, we have published an easy-to-understand summary of the requirements for receiving benefits, the estimated amount of benefits, consultation counters, and how to make a claim, mainly for cancer patients and their families, to give them hints when making a claim. This site also features interviews with survivors who actually received disability pensions, medical social workers, doctors, and social insurance labor consultants.

-About disability
pension-https://www.cancernet.jp/seikatsu/medical/disability-pension/ Disability pension can be received by claiming when your daily life or work is restricted due to illness or injury, but it is important for patients to receive benefits even if they suffer from physical disability caused by cancer or side effects from treatment. The current situation is that it is not well known even by Mr. In addition, many people say that the procedures and document preparation for claiming disability pension are complicated and difficult. *“Survey on disability pension for cancer patients” (conducted by Cancer Net Japan from June 26 to July 10, 2023)
http://prtimes.jp/main/html/rd/p/000000126.000025644.html
However, the financial burden of treatment for cancer patients is significant, and it may become difficult to work as before, resulting in a reduction in income. In such cases, receiving a disability pension can provide financial support to the patient.
At Cancer Net Japan, we are conducting these projects so that cancer patients who meet the eligibility requirements for disability pension can receive it without having to give up on claiming disability pension.
*This project is being implemented using a grant from Pfizer Inc.’s “Medical Education Project: Improving the Treatment Environment for Acute Leukemia.” -Certified NPO Cancer Net Japan- Founded in 1991, our mission is to disseminate information based on scientific evidence so that cancer patients can receive treatment based on their wishes. We became an NPO in 2001, opened a dedicated secretariat in January 2007, and are currently active nationwide from our bases in Tokyo and Osaka. Became a certified NPO in August 2016, and its current main activities are holding awareness events about various cancers, producing the “More You Need to Know Series Booklet” that is installed at cancer treatment collaboration base hospitals nationwide, and training. We also carry out educational projects such as courses and certification exams. Through these activities, we aim to create a society where people facing cancer can face it in their own way. The Japan Cancer Forum, which has been held every year since 2014 to disseminate the latest medical information on all cancers, including rare cancers, is one of the largest cancer awareness events aimed not only at cancer patients and their families, but also at the general public. . https://www.cancernet.jp/
