Return to Work After a Workplace-oriented Intervention for Patients on Sick Leave Due to Burnout

2014-07-23 21:11:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study aims to evaluate the effect on return to work of a workplace intervention with patients being treated for burnout. The intervention intends to reduce job-person mismatch through patient-supervisor communication.The hypothesis is that the intervention group will show a more favourable outcome than a control group with respect to return to work.

Description

Participants are consecutively recruited in co-operation with regional social insurance offices (RSIOs) in the two southern counties of Sweden. Persons accepting participation are clinically examined and interviewed of the course of events leading up to the burnout and the patient's expectations of changes necessary to facilitate return to work are recorded. The patient´s supervisor is then interviewed at the workplace, responding to the same questions on perceived main causes of the subordinate's sick leave and changes necessary to facilitate return to work. Finally, the core intervention takes place, namely a dialogue being initiated between the patient and the supervisor to find solutions to facilitate return to work. Out of those who do not want to participate, without giving any specific reason for that, a control group is matched by length and degree of sick leave at the time of the intervention.

Adverse psychological and behavioral reactions caused by the pressures and demands of employers or clients or other factors, such as the physical environment of the workplace, WORKPLACE VIOLENCE; or WORKPLACE BULLYING.

The inability of a health professional to provide proper professional care of patients due to his or her physical and/or mental disability.

A form of discrimination in the workplace which violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sexual harassment takes two forms: quid pro quo, where the employee must submit to sexual advances in exchange for job benefits or be penalized for refusing; or a hostile environment, where the atmosphere of the workplace is offensive and affects the employee's well-being. Offensive sexual conduct may include unwelcome advances, comments, touching, questions about marital status and sex practices, etc. Both men and women may be aggressors or victims. (Slee and Slee, Health Care Terms, 2d ed, p.404). While civil rights legislation deals with sexual harassment in the workplace, the behavior is not restricted to this; it may take place outside the work environment: in schools and colleges, athletics, and other social milieus and activities.
