Partner relationships and long-term sick leave among female workers: consequences and impact on dimensions of health and return to work
Dellve, Lotta et Tone Ahlborg (2012). Partner relationships and long-term sick leave among female workers: consequences and impact on dimensions of health and return to work. Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences . Few efforts have been made to prospectively identify resources and obstacles outside work that may predict regained work ability and return to work when workers are on sick leave. This study investigates the association between partner relationships and sick leave. Our research questions were as follows: (i) What is the influence of sick leave, pain, stress and domestic strain on the...

Optimism and pessimism as predictors of work disability with a diagnosis of depression: A prospective cohort study of onset and recovery
Kronström, Kim et al. (2011). Journal of Affective Disorders ,130 (1-2): 294-299 Personality characteristics are assumed to affect to the vulnerability to depression and its outcomes. The aim of this study was to examine optimism and pessimism as predictors of depression-related work disability and subsequent return to work.

Return to work following road accidents: Factors associated with late work resumption
Objective: To analyse factors associated with late return to work in road accident victims. Materials and methods: The ESPARR cohort comprises road accident victims monitored over time from initiation of hospital care. A total of 608 ESPARR cohort subjects were working at the time of their accident and answered questionnaires at 6 months and/or 1 year. For each level of overall severity of injury (Maximum – Abbreviated Injury Scale (M-AIS) 1, 2, 3 and 4–5), a time-off-work threshold was defined, beyond which the subject was deemed to be a late returner; 179 subjects were considered...

A bio-psycho-social exercise program (RUCKGEWINN) for chronic low back pain in rehabilitation aftercare - Study protocol for a randomised controlled trial
There is strong, internationally confirmed evidence for the short-term effectiveness of multimodal interdisciplinary specific treatment programs for chronic back pain. However, the verification of long-term sustainability of achieved effects is missing so far. For long-term improvement of pain and functional ability high intervention intensity or high volume seems to be necessary (> 100 therapy hours). Especially in chronic back pain rehabilitation, purposefully refined aftercare treatments offer the possibility to intensify positive effects or to increase their sustainability. However, quality...

Early employer response to workplace injury: What injured workers perceive as fair and why these perceptions matter
The authors examined whether early employer response to workplace injury affects injured workers' subsequent attitudes and mental health. At 1 month and 6 months postinjury, telephone surveys were conducted with 344 workers from Ontario, Canada, who had experienced a musculoskeletal lost-time workplace injury. One-month reports of initial supervisor reaction to the injury and the use of workplace-based return-to-work strategies (early contact with worker, ergonomic assessment, presence of designated coordinator, accommodation offer) were hypothesized to predict reports of fairness, affective...
