Factors associated with return to work in men and women with work-related traumatic brain injury

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...
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...

Compensation benefits in a population-based cohort of men and women on long-term disability after musculoskeletal injuries
Costs, course, predictors OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to assess costs, duration and predictors of prolonged compensation benefits by gender in a population characterised by long-term compensation benefits for traumatic or non-traumatic musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs). METHODS: This study examined 3 years of data from a register-based provincial cohort including all new allowed long-term claims (≥3 months of wage replacement benefits) related to neck/shoulder/back/trunk/upper-limb MSIs in Quebec, Canada, from 2001 to 2003 (13 073 men and 9032 women).

Logistic regression models examined the association between family status and the receipt of workers' compensation, and absences due to work-related injury or illnesses of 7 or more days. Results: Being a lone mother was significantly associated with the risk of work-injury absence. Gender differences were observed for workers' compensation...

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...
Work-related gender differences in physician-certified sick leave
A prospective study of the general working population in Norway Objectives: This study aimed to examine gender differences in physician-certified sick leave and the extent to which these differences can be explained by work-related psychosocial and mechanical risk factors.

The Combination of Work Organizational Climate and Individual Work Commitment Predicts Return to Work in Women But Not in Men

Results : Among women, the combination of good organizational climate and fair work commitment predicted an early RTW with an adjusted relative risk of 2.05 (1.32 to 3.18). Among men, none of the adjusted variables...
