AbstractWith the arrival of a child, working professionals often struggle with child-caring responsibilities. This can be exacerbated by the absence of an adequate support system at work, such as lack of parental leave. Though supported by most men and women, paternity leave is heavily underutilized across industries due in part to external pressures and a lack of consistent availability. To date, the topic of paternity leave has not been examined in our field. Therefore, our goal is to evaluate the utilization of paternity leave in radiation oncology (RO) practices and identify any associated barriers.
