    14. June 2021 - 18. June 2021  


    Welcome to our NIVA online course on

    Work Disability Prevention
    – Bridging research and practice

    14th – 18th of June 2021, Online
    This course presents “The Best Of” the highly valued 3-year course on Work Disability Prevention.
    Work disability occurs when a worker is impaired in performing his or her job. Work disability is expressed by continuing working but performing less, i.e. presenteeism, or by reporting sick, i.e. absenteeism. As such, it imposes large individual, social, and economical burdens. It is also a major concern to workers, their families, employers, policy makers, insurers, and occupational health service providers.

    Course objectives
    The objective of the course is to disseminate transdisciplinary knowledge with focus on theoretical, methodological, ethical and practical challenges in relation to work disability prevention. The target audience is PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and practitioners with a master’s degree who are linked to the work disability field.

    Main topics
    Three different Work Disability Prevention topics will be addressed and integrated:
    1. Introduction to Work Disability Prevention (including transdisciplinarity)
    2. Intervention research in Work Disability Prevention (including organizational interventions and health promotion aiming at both individuals and workplaces)
    3. Sociopolitical challenges with Work Disability Prevention (including implementation of evidence-based practice)

    Course leaders
    Ute Bültmann, Professor, University of Groningen, NL
    Angelique de Rijk, PhD, Professor, Maastricht University, NL
    Emilie Friberg, Senior Researcher, Karolinska Insitutet, SE
