Event description

Description

"When working-age individuals consult with healthcare professionals, we want to see them receive work-related advice and supportive engagement as part of making work a health outcome. This is based on the understanding that good work is good for health”. (Department for Work & Pensions/Department for Health and Social Care, 2017).

The healthcare system is a crucial stakeholder in helping to reduce the global burden of work loss due to ill-health. This seminar will present findings from two realist reviews conducted to inform government policy and healthcare practice in the UK & Australia.
