Chronic pain and work rehabilitation: Does meaning matt

Chronic pain and work rehabilitation: Does meaning matt

Work disability is a costly problem and a challenge for the occupational therapist charged with ensuring return to work. An important piece of the work disability puzzle is the meaning of work. For most people, who spend the majority of their day doing paid work, work is an important source of meaning. But what happens when this meaning is challenged by chronic pain due to a musculoskeletal injury? This webinar will first review the evidence on the meaning of work for those with work disability. It will then use real cases based on experiences with chronic pain to illustrate the role of meaning in work disability. Finally, practical suggestions for focusing on meaning in a work rehabilitation context will be explored.
