Work disability prevention: A primer for occupational therapists

Presenter: Behdin Nowrouzi-Kia & Alicia McDougall

There has been a shift in paradigm from workplace disability and injury treatment to workplace disability prevention (McDougall & Nowrouzi-Kia, 2017). Occupational therapy practitioners may espouse a work disability prevention approach to lower work disability rates and provide timely return-to-work outcomes for clients. This webinar will explore the work disability prevention approach in occupational therapy and illustrate case examples of utilizing this approach as opposed to workplace disability and injury treatment. Strategies for collaboration between stakeholders will be discussed.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Explain the work disability prevention approach.
  2. Identify at least three effective interventions for workplace disability prevention that occupational therapists can utilize in their practice.
  3. Identify key sociopolitical stakeholders and potential collaboration strategies with these stakeholders.
