First book to comprehensively address emerging field in which new knowledge can induce new ways of management
State-of-the-art integrative and critical review of the conceptual, methodological, and practical aspects of work disability prevention
Authors are part of teaching team of the unique international advanced training program in work disability prevention, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research
As work is recognized as beneficial to people's well-being, its absence is being considered in greater detail. Increasingly, work disability is being understood as a public health issue, and work disability prevention is gaining strength as an aspect of occupational health.
The Handbook of Work Disability overviews this emerging field in accessible and practical fashion. This timely volume offers current theory for understanding the determinants of work disability (regardless of illness or injury that keeps individuals from the workplace), and a template for interventions that benefit both patient and other stakeholders. Experts across multiple fields examine the lives of work disabled patients, analyze the societal and workplace burden of work disability, and review bedrock concepts of the disability and its prevention. Featuring assessment tools, evidence-based intervention strategies, and insights into disorder-specific populations, this is information useful to the practicing clinician, the researcher, and the trainee. Included in the Handbook:
Pain, chronicity, and disability.
Measuring outcomes in work disability prevention.
The influence of care providers on work disability.
Psychosocial factors for disability and return to work.
Core components of return-to-work interventions.
Plus issue-specific chapters on low back pain, TBI, mental illness, and cancer.
The Handbook of Work Disability is a definitive reference for psychologists, therapists, and rehabilitation professionals, as well as administrators, researchers, and students.
