Quels sont les facilitateurs du maintien en emploi en santé des travailleurs seniors dans un milieu d’éducation au Québec?
Le pourcentage de travailleurs seniors âgés de 45 ans et plus augmente sans cesse sur le marché du travail au Québec. Dans le secteur de l'éducation, une large portion de la main-d'œuvre est âgée de 45 ans et plus (41 %) et un tiers du personnel aura quitté son poste entre 2009 et 2018 (Grenier, 2009). Des statistiques récentes montrent aussi que les lésions tant de nature physique que psychologique des travailleurs québécois du secteur de l'éducation sont souvent associées à...
Relations interculturelles - Comprendre le processus de réadaptation et de retour au travail
Dans le domaine de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (SST), les barrières linguistiques et culturelles sont souvent décrites comme des facteurs de vulnérabilité des travailleurs. Il est rapporté que de telles barrières ont déjà été ou sont encore à l'origine d'erreurs diagnostiques ou de mauvaises évaluations cliniques, compliquant ainsi le processus de réadaptation et de retour au travail. La problématique de la réadaptation et du retour au travail dans le contexte...
Joint association of multimorbidity and work ability with risk of long-term sickness absence
A prospective cohort study with register follow-up Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the joint association of multimorbidity and work ability with the risk of long-term sickness absence (LTSA) in the general working population. Methods: Cox regression analysis censoring for competing events (statutory retirement, early retirement, disability pension, immigration, or death) was performed to estimate the joint association of chronic diseases and work ability in relation to physical and mental demands of the job with the prospective risk for LTSA (defined as ≥6 consecutive weeks...
Factors associated with return to work in men and women with work-related traumatic brain injury
Background: Symptoms that persist subsequent to a work-related traumatic brain injury (wrTBI) influence the ability to return to work (RTW) and indicate areas of functional disability, as classified in the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework. Objective: The purpose of this study was to describe the relationship between RTW status and ICF framework domains in men and women with a wrTBI. Methods: A retrospective chart review of 209 consecutive workers with TBI (mild TBI: 71.8%; mean age: 40.2 ± 11.1, men: 71.3%) was conducted. Workers were assessed...
Effectiveness of a return-to-work program for workers without an employment contract, sick-listed due to common mental disorders
A participatory supportive return-to-work (RTW) program did not result in a significant shorter duration until sustainable RTW of workers without an employment contract, sick-listed due to a common mental disorder, compared to usual occupational healthcare. Further research is needed to consider how vocational needs of these vulnerable workers could be better addressed. Source: Lammerts L, Schaafsma FG, Bonefaas-Groenewoud K, van Mechelen W, Anema JR.

Cross-cultural adaptation and validation of the Danish version of the 19-item return-to-work self-efficacy (RTWSE-19) questionnaire
A Danish version of the 19-item return-to-work self-efficacy (RTWSE-19) questionnaire was developed. The performance of a questionnaire may differ between populations and in various cultures. In order to use the RTWSE-19 in a Danish context, translation was necessary, and cross-cultural and conceptual adaptation needed to preserve the original purpose of the instrument.

Workplace social capital and risk of long-term sickness absence
Are associations modified by occupational grade? BACKGROUND: Workplace social capital (WSC) is an emerging topic among both work environment professionals and researchers. We examined (i) whether high WSC protected against risk of long-term sickness absence (LTSA) in a random sample of the Danish workforce during a 1-year follow-up and (ii) whether the association of WSC with sickness absence was modified by occupational grade. METHODS: We measured WSC by self-report in a cohort of 3075 employees and linked responses to a national register of sickness absence. We calculated hazard ratios (HRs)...
L'effet des arrêts maladie sur les trajectoires professionnelles
À la fin des années 2000, les taux d'emploi des personnes ayant des incapacités en France étaient de 46 % contre 72 % pour les personnes sans incapacités. Si l'on sait évaluer, pour l'Assurance maladie, le coût de l'indemnisation de l'incapacité temporaire de travail pour maladie (6,7 milliards d'euros soit 3,7 % des dépenses de santé en 2012), on ignore encore largement les effets de ces arrêts de travail sur les parcours professionnels. Cette étude analyse l'effet des arrêts maladie...

Decrease social inequalities return-to-work
Development and design of a randomised controlled trial among women with breast cancer Abstract: Background Despite the improvement in the care management, women cancer patients who are still in employment find themselves for the most part obliged to stop working while they are having treatment. Their return-to-work probability is impacted by numerous psychosocial factors. The objective is to describe the development and the content of an intervention aimed to facilitate the return to work of female breast cancer patients and in particular the women in the most precarious situations through early...
La réadaptation au travail des personnes issues de l’immigration et des minorités ethnoculturelles
Défis, perspectives et pistes de recherche Les travailleurs immigrants, et plus spécialement les immigrants récents, sont souvent définis comme une population plus vulnérable quant aux risques de lésions professionnelles et de l'absence prolongée du travail. Cette vulnérabilité est liée au fait que plusieurs d'entre eux rencontrent des barrières linguistiques et culturelles qui peuvent teinter leur rencontre avec les intervenants, en plus de moins bien connaître le système de santé et de compensation...
La reconstruction professionnelle après un burnout
Pour continuer à s'intégrer dans une vie professionnelle et sociale, un cadre victime de burnout (épuisement professionnel) doit se reconstruire. L'analyse sociologique du parcours de reconstruction post-burnout permet de montrer que les étapes traversées par les victimes sont identiques. Cette même analyse met en évidence les places respectives de la centralité et du sens du travail qui ont un rôle essentiel dans l'identité professionnelle. Cet article propose aux médecins du travail et/ou aux gestionnaires...
