Rehabilitation after sick leave
Forte now announces a call for proposals for research on the return to work after sick leave due to mental illness and pain. The research should increase the understanding of which factors and interventions within the health care system and involving work places promote rehabilitation and return to work.
Studies should be carried out in collaboration or contact with employer organisations, workplaces or Arbetsförmedlingen, the Swedish Public Employment Service. Projects must use the outcome measures and data sources for return to work as presented by the Swedish government’s social security agency, Försäkringskassan, in a report that was published on 30 september 2016 , p. 15-19.
Applications to Forte should be submitted by a Swedish county organisation (landsting) or regional organisation, but in collaboration with a university or other research organisation.
Deadline: 15/12-16. Read more about the call.
