Assessment of Fitness for Return to Work

Musculoskeletal pain is a major cause of disability and affects an individual’s ability to engage in work. Only 40% of patients who have chronic musculoskeletal pain are able to work full time. Employment is an essential part of life and an inability to work due to disability has many negative effects. Occupational health physiotherapists need to conduct thorough assessments to determine fitness to return to work for patients with these conditions. This course introduces this role of the healthcare professional and discusses the key features of an evidence based return to work assessment.
