Updating of the systematic and descriptive review of the literature on the strategies for preventing the prolonged occupational disability of workers compensated for work-related musculoskeletal disorders


A systematic and descriptive scientific literature review of articles published until January 2008 was issued on the IRSST’s site in 2011. However, as knowledge in the field of rehabilitation is rapidly evolving, the literature review must be updated to provide the most recent data on emerging topics of interest and new trends in occupational rehabilitation research.

The purpose of this activity is to provide an update of the knowledge on successful intervention strategies for preventing prolonged disability in workers compensated for musculoskeletal disorders.
