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...
Online assessment of patients’ work disability representations to promote evidence based practice in rehabilitation setting
The Revised Illness Perception Questionnaire adapted for Work Disability (IPQR-WD) is an adaptation of Illness Perception Questionnaire-Revised: the most used and most comprehensive tool for measuring illness perceptions. Evaluating representations is crucial, since it is a main determinant of return to work in cases of persistent pain due to musculoskeletal disorders. This study aim at facilitating systematic assessment of work disability representations by assessing the usability of the Web platform and the usefulness of automatic interpretation of the results.

Déterminants cliniques et neuromécaniques du développement de l'incapacité lombaire chez les travailleurs
Au-delà de la simple lésion, les blessures, dysfonctions et pathologies musculosquelettiques entraînent aussi, sur le plan individuel, des conséquences psychologiques importantes. Sur le plan sociétal, la gestion de ce type d'affections entraîne d'importants coûts socio-économiques. La société occidentale qui a vu, au cours des dernières décennies, une augmentation de la disponibilité des services et de l'accessibilité aux soins de santé, a aussi parallèlement connu une explosion...

Plus précisément, il s'agissait de valider les propriétés psychométriques relatives à l'ORTESES : (1) validité de contenu, (2) validité apparente, (3) validité de construit...
Measurement Properties of the Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale in Patients With Nonspecific Low Back Pain
Systematic Review Background: The Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale (QBPDS) has been translated into different languages, and several studies on its measurement properties have been done. Purpose: The purpose of this review was to critically appraise and compare the measurement properties, when possible, of all language versions of the QBPDS by systematically reviewing the methodological quality and results of the available studies. Method: Bibliographic databases (PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, and PsycINFO) were searched for articles with the key words “Quebec,” “back,” “pain...
Use of Framingham Risk Score as a Clinical Tool for the Assessment of Fitness for Work
Results From a Cohort Study Objective: The aim of this study is to validate the use of the Framingham Risk Score (FRS) as clinical tool to predict the risk of diagnosis of unsuitability for work in a cohort of Italian workers. Methods: A cohort of workers has been observed from January 2006 to March 2014. FRS was calculated at each visit. Health surveillance diagnosis of unsuitability for work was selected as outcome. Results: Two thousand eight hundred fifty seven workers were observed, 58.9% were men, mean age was 51.6 (±6.7), the mean FRS was 15.1% (±10.7%). Increased values of...
Screening instruments for predicting return to work in long-term sickness absence
BACKGROUND: Multiple somatic symptoms are common and may cause prolonged sickness absence (SA) and unsuccessful return to work (RTW). AIMS: To compare three instruments and their predictive and discriminative abilities regarding RTW. METHODS: A longitudinal cohort study of participants recruited from two municipal job centres, with at least 8 weeks of SA. The instruments used were the Symptom Check List of somatic distress (SCL-SOM) (score 0-48 points), the Bodily Distress Syndrome Questionnaire (BDSQ) (0-120 points) and the one-item self-rated health (SRH) (1-5 points). The instruments' predictive...
The capability set for work
Development and validation of a new questionnaire Objectives: The aim of this study was to develop a questionnaire to measure work capabilities based on Amartya Sen's capability approach and evaluate its validity. Methods: The development of the questionnaire was based on a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods: interviews, literature study, and an expert meeting. Additionally, in a survey, the validity was evaluated by means of hypotheses testing (using correlations and regression analyses). Results: The questionnaire consists of a set of seven capability aspects for work. For...
L’évaluation clinique, les traitements et le retour en emploi de travailleurs souffrant d’atteintes de la coiffe des rotateurs
Bilan des connaissances Les atteintes musculosquelettiques de l'épaule constituent une problématique importante au sein de la population générale, et particulièrement chez les travailleurs. Ce type d'atteintes affecte le statut fonctionnel de l'épaule et la qualité de vie des personnes et peut entrainer, chez les travailleurs, des problématiques d'absentéisme ou des pertes de productivité. Les travailleurs effectuant des tâches avec les bras au-dessus des épaules ou des tâches répétitives...
Predictors of permanent work disability among =50-year-old patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention
Objectives: This study aimed to describe the incidence and periprocedural predictors of permanent work disability (PWD) pension among patients ≤50 years old who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Methods: Patient records of 910 consecutive patients undergoing PCI at four Finnish hospitals in 2002–2012 were reviewed for baseline and procedural data and late adverse events. Data on permanent work disability (PWD) pension allocation were acquired from the Finnish Centre for Pensions, which governs the statutory pension security in Finland. Results: Mean follow-up was 41 ...
How can a brief intervention contribute to coping with back pain?
A focus group study about participants' expériences Background: Our aim was to explore how individuals who had participated in a brief back and neck pain intervention perceived connections between the intervention and their subsequent coping. Methods: Three focus group discussions were conducted with a sample of ten employees aged 20–67 years, who had participated in a brief intervention for back and neck pain, perceived the intervention as helpful and had returned or remained at work subsequent to the intervention. Participants were invited to share stories of how the intervention...
Screening manual and office workers for risk of long-term sickness absence
Cut-off points for the Work Ability Index Objectives : The aim of this study was to investigate the Work Ability Index (WAI) as a tool to screen for risk of different durations of long-term sickness absence (LTSA) among manual and office workers. Methods : The prospective study comprised a cohort of 3049 (1710 manual and 1339 office) workers participating in occupational health surveys between 2010–2012. The survey date was set as baseline and incident LTSA episodes of different duration (>14, >28, >42, >60, and >90 days) were retrieved from an occupational health register...

The Clinical Utility of the Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI) in Characterizing Chronic Disabling Occupational Musculoskeletal Disorders
Purpose The Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI) was designed to help capture unique characteristics of chronic pain patients. The present study examined the proportion of subgroups classified by the MPI in a chronic disabling occupational musculoskeletal disorder (CDOMD) patient cohort, and described characteristics of MPI profile groups in terms of other psychosocial variables. Methods A cohort of 1,270 CDOMD patients undergoing an interdisciplinary functional restoration program was studied. Before the start of the program, all patients received a standard psychosocial assessment battery. A...
Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the Work Limitations Questionnaire (WLQ-25) in Workers' Compensation Claimants with Chronic Upper-Limb Disorders
Purpose : To examine the factorial validity of the Work Limitations Questionnaire (WLQ-25) among workers' compensation claimants with chronic upper-limb disorders. Methods : Attendees of the WSIB Shoulder and Elbow Specialty clinic in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, completed a survey that includes the WLQ-25 [4 subscales: time-management (TM), physical demands (PD), mental-interpersonal (MI), and output demands (OD)]. Confirmatory factor analyses (n = 2262) were conducted to evaluate and compare alternative 4- and 5-factor WLQ-25 structures [MI subscale intact vs. separated into mental demands ...
