Prevention of sickness absence

Research on sickness absence has mainly focused on the identification of risk factors and treatment and rehabilitation for reducing the duration of sickness absence and hasten return to work. The focus has often been musculoskeletal disorders. The recent years increase of sickness absence with common mental disorders has increased the need for more research. At EPSO several projects aim at preventing sickness absence by developing methods to support first line managers and work places to reduce work related mental health problems and by early identification of persons with instable work capacity adapt work tasks or work situation to avoid sickness absence.
