Factors associated with return to work in patients with long-term disabilities due to neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders
The current study explores factors predicting return to work in a sample of patients with neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders who have attended a prevocational readiness and social skills training programme many years after trauma. Participants were community-dwelling adults with long-term disabilities (N = 67). Results of univariate analyses followed by multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that both pre-injury (prior) and post-injury (current) factors influenced the likelihood of employment in our sample: prior employment, current employment readiness, current...

Modulation du gain auditif central dans une perspective de réadaptation des travailleurs souffrant d’acouphènes
L'objectif de l'étude 1 était de démontrer l'existence du gain auditif central et de le localiser fonctionnellement. Deux groupes d'adultes ayant une audition normale ont porté des bouchons ou des générateurs de bruit pendant une semaine. Ils ont fait l'objet de tests avant et après la privation (bouchons) ou la stimulation (générateurs de bruit) sur une batterie d'évaluation de l'audition contenant des mesures allant de la cochlée jusqu'au cortex auditif. Les résultats démontrent...

Pratiques des milieux de travail pour assurer un retour en emploi sain et durable
Au Québec, la Loi sur les accidents du travail et des maladies professionnelles (LATMP) établit que tout travailleur ayant subi une lésion professionnelle qui porte atteinte à son intégrité physique ou psychique a droit à la réadaptation que requiert son état en vue de sa réinsertion sociale et professionnelle. La LATMP prévoit aussi un droit de retour au travail lorsque le travailleur redevient capable d’exercer son métier. Les organisations et les travailleurs sont donc directement concernés par la...
Work, organisational practices, and margin of manoeuver during work reintegration
BACKGROUND: Many individuals of working age experience cardiovascular disease and are disabled from work as a result. The majority of research in cardiac work disability has focused on individual biological and psychological factors influencing work disability despite evidence of the importance of social context in work disability. In this article, the focus is on work and organisational features influencing the leeway (margin of manoeuvre) workers are afforded during work reintegration. METHODS: A qualitative method was used. A large auto manufacturing plant was selected owing to work, organisational...
Models of care for the management of persistent musculoskeletal pain and/or depression
Musculoskeletal pain can occur following damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones. The three main causes of musculoskeletal pain are unusual or repetitive strain on the system, trauma to a specific area from a fall, sprain or blow, and certain musculoskeletal diseases.1 Many Australians experience musculoskeletal pain, however for a few, this becomes chronic or persistent. 2 Persistent musculoskeletal pain is often associated with depression and anxiety.3 Persistent musculoskeletal pain is a major cause of disability in older age and a major cause of work absence in the working age...
Return to work after mild-to-moderate stroke: work satisfaction and predictive factors
A large proportion of stroke patients are unable to return to work (RTW), although figures vary greatly. A total of 121 mild-to-moderate stroke patients, who had a paid job at the time of their stroke were included (a) to quantify RTW and work satisfaction one-year post-stroke (using the Utrecht Scale for Evaluation of Rehabilitation-Participation) and (b) to determine factors predicting RTW post-stroke, based on stroke-related, personal and neuropsychological variables. Half of the patients were not in work (28%) or were working less (22%) than pre-stroke. Ninety percent of those in fulltime employment...
Length of sickness absence and sustained return-to-work in mental disorders and musculoskeletal diseases
A cohort study of public sector employees This study adds to the scientific evidence on the length of sickness absence until sustained return to work (SRTW) in depression, anxiety disorders, intervertebral disc disorders, and back pain among Finnish public sector employees. Timescales are provided for returning to work in different occupational groups also taking into consideration the persistence of the health problem and comorbid conditions.

Work ability in rheumatoid arthritis patients
A register study on the prospective risk of exclusion and probability of returning to work Objectives: The aim was to study work ability in patients with RA compared with the general population by investigating the rates and risks of long-term sickness absence, unemployment and disability pension, and the chance of returning to work and the changes in these risks over time (1994-2011). Methods: This was a cohort study with up to 17 years of follow-up (mean 6.95 years/person) including 6677 RA patients of working age (identified in the nationwide DANBIO registry) and 56 955 matched controls from...
Long-Term Outcomes of Multidisciplinary Rehabilitation for Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
Objectives: Evidence for the effectiveness of multidisciplinary rehabilitation for chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP) has been reported but its outcomes in the longer term and in mixed groups of chronic pain patients are largely unknown. The aim of the present study was to describe the two-year outcomes of a 15-week multidisciplinary pain rehabilitation programme in patients with mixed CMP in terms of pain, activities, participation and healthcare usage. Methods: Data were recorded routinely at admission, discharge, and at three, 12 and 24 months' follow-up for all consecutive patients...
Effectiveness of Workplace Interventions in Return-to-Work for Musculoskeletal, Pain-Related and Mental Health Conditions
An Update of the Evidence and Messages for Practitioners Purpose: The objective of this systematic review was to synthesize evidence on the effectiveness of workplace-based return-to-work (RTW) interventions and work disability management (DM) interventions that assist workers with musculoskeletal (MSK) and pain-related conditions and mental health (MH) conditions with RTW. Methods: We followed a systematic review process developed by the Institute for Work & Health and an adapted best evidence synthesis that ranked evidence as strong, moderate, limited, or insufficient. Results: Seven electronic...
Return to Work in Patients with Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain: Multidisciplinary Intervention Versus Brief Intervention
A Randomized Clinical Trial Objective: This randomized clinical trial was performed to compare the effect of a new multidisciplinary intervention (MI) programme to a brief intervention (BI) programme on return to work (RTW), fully and partly, at a 12-month and 24-month follow-up in patients on long-term sick leave due to musculoskeletal pain. Methods: Patients (n = 284, mean age 41.3 years, 53.9 % women) who were sick-listed with musculoskeletal pain and referred to a specialist clinic in physical rehabilitation were randomized to MI (n = 141) or BI (n = 143). The MI included the use of a visual...
Return to work after cancer
There is an increasing amount of information available for line managers, human resources and occupational health professionals on helping individuals with cancer stay in work. However, until this research, there had been a lack of evidence on specific health and safety issues and effective approaches to risk assessment and risk management for occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals, and others, to support those undergoing treatment or returning to work after cancer. The research addresses this evidence gap by: - seeking to understand the health and safety implications of returning to...
Rehabilitation and return to work after cancer: Literature review
As treatments have improved, there are more and more people surviving cancer in Europe. While most cancer survivors return to work after treatment, many face long-term symptoms and impairments that can make it difficult for them to do so. This report provides an overview of the relevant scientific literature, conducted to collect information on existing initiatives, policies and practices on rehabilitation and return to work after cancer and gather examples of successful interventions.
