Common workplace disability prevention strategies across health conditions

Work disability is costly problem for all nations and has a huge impact on the health of workers. Returning injured workers to safe and sustainable work is of high priority for both economic prosperity and improved health outcomes. Unfortunately, the proportion of workers on sick leave is substantial in Denmark and elsewhere, and return-to-work (RTW) initiatives and interventions are a high priority. The purpose of this collaboration is to undertake a systematic review of determinants of work disability across health conditions to explore common principles that apply in work disability prevention. The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation funds this project.
