Abstract:
The overall goal of this study was to assess possible discrepancies between evidence-based best RTW practices and actual workplace practices, and to suggest possible improvements. The objectives were: (1) determine, based on the literature, the best practices for fostering sustainable RTW and preventing long-term disability among workers with MSDs; (2) describe actual RTW practices and identify the conditions facilitating their implementation in Québec workplaces; and (3) assess the discrepancies between the best practices recommended in the evidence-based literature and actual practices in workplaces, and ultimately to propose ways for improving the transfer from theory to practice.
