This lesson, designed more or less specifically for the situation in the UK, helps to create awareness for the beneficial effect of remaining in or returning to work. It also identifies the principles of effective rehabilitation and helps in the proper formulation of an advice (in a so-called fit note) to support the rehabilitation of a worker having health complaints. Checklists to quickly assess the impacts of health on work and work on health are introduced. In addition, it gives advice on how to integrate the rehabilitation advice into the management plan for early intervention.
The lesson is meant for medical doctors at the secondary care level and consists of several interactive slides. The slides contain descriptive texts, questions and feedback, and illustrative pictures and movies. Certain links can be clicked on to get an additional explanation. The lesson is given in English only.
NOTE: an additional lesson on the same topic and with the same title, however at the primary care level, can be found following the link given in the Comments block.
