The importance, measurement and practical implications of worker's expectations for return to work
PURPOSE: Workers' own expectations for return to work consistently predict work status. To advance the understanding of the relationship between RTW expectations and outcomes, we reviewed existing measures to determine those which we felt were the most likely to capture the construct. METHOD: A comprehensive search of the work-disability rehabilitation literature was undertaken. The review of the measures was conducted in three steps: first, a review of terminology; second, an examination of whether a time reference was included; third, an evaluation of ease of comprehension, and applicability...
Validity and Reliability of the Fear-Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire (FABQ) in Workers with Upper Extremity Injuries
Introduction Fear Avoidance Beliefs (FAB) have been associated with increased pain, dysfunction and difficulty returning to work in Upper Extremity (UE) injures. The FABQ is used to assess FAB, but its measurement properties have not been established in UE. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the reliability and validity of the FABQ to screen UE compensated injured workers for FAB. Methods Consenting workers attending a specialty clinic completed a modified FABQ, QuickDASH (Disability), SPADI Pain Score and von Korff Chronic Pain Grade (Pain), SF-36v2 (General Health), and Work Instability...
Recovery Expectations Predict Recovery in Workers With Back Pain but Not Other Musculoskeletal Conditions
Study Design: Prospective cohort study. Objective: We examined whether recovery expectations predict future return-to-work in workers filing injury claims for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Summary of Background Data: Recovery expectations seem to influence recovery and return-to-work after back pain, but their role in other compensable conditions is uncertain. Methods: All workers' compensation claimants receiving time-loss benefits for a musculoskeletal condition and undergoing return-to-work assessment were enrolled. Claimants completed a work-related recovery expectations questionnaire...

Methods: Semi-structured interviews were used to gather information from twenty-five clients experiencing depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder. Clients...
Factors Related to Return to Work by Women with Breast Cancer in Northern France
Introduction Earlier diagnosis and better treatment have increased the survival rates of breast cancer patients. This warrants research on return to work of cancer survivors, especially about subjective factors because they affect the mental desire to return to work. Moreover, knowledge in this issue is very limited in France. Objectives This study aims to explore the objective and subjective factors that affect whether and when women with breast cancer return to work. Methods 379 women with breast cancer aged 18–60 years who were working at the time of diagnosis responded to a 45 item questionnaire...
Perceptions of possibilities of returning to work with chronic musculoskeletal disorders
Chronic musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are the most common cause of work disability in the western world. Return to work (RTW) with chronic MSD is a complex process dependent on individual and social factors, including individual perceptions of the process. No studies have addressed RTW in the Slovenian context of high job protection legislation. This study was aimed at understanding how Slovenian employees with MSD made sense of their experiences with work and life before and after the occurrence of MSD, giving meaning to their perceptions of the possibility to return to work. Data were collected...
