Psychosocial Factors and Return to Work – Conundrums Workshop

REGISTER FOR WORKSHOP

The goal is a safe and sustainable return to work or stay at work for individuals who have sustained physical injury. In this second level, three-hour workshop participants will learn how to engage all the stakeholders in the return to work process, how to move from subjective to objective findings, why the whole person approach is effective and focus on function/work ability. Participants will learn how to identify psychosocial factors and practical strategies for management.


  • Insurance Case Managers and Human Resource Professionals are responsible for returning employees to work who have sustained physical workplace injuries and accommodating employees with chronic health conditions
  • Studies have shown psychosocial factors to be more influential than physical factors in determining return to work
  • Psychosocial factors are often hidden and misunderstood
  • Supervisor support increases probability of return to work by 2x to 5x

Case Management Issues

  • Medical information states that the individual can return to work, however, the individual states they can't
  • The individual reports high levels of pain which can seem disproportionate to the diagnosis and timelines
  • The individual reports elevated levels of disability not only at work but at home and in the community
