In Canada and the Netherlands, randomized controlled trials proved that the Sherbrooke model is an effective method to induce sustainable work resumption for patients off work over one month due to back problems. The model offered an individually tailored, workplace oriented, step-by-step multidisciplinary return to work strategy. Prior to implementing the model in Belgium, this study aimed at adapting it to the Belgian social security system and labour market needs. A qualitative study was conducted in 2011, with the support of the European Social Fund: discussion groups were organised with sickness absence benefit insurers; employers and workers unions; physicians, ergonomists, psychologists and nurses involved in disability management; and academic experts including the international group of trainees and mentors of the Strategic Training Program in Work Disability Prevention. The meetings aimed at collecting ideas and proposals for model adaptation. For the final model adaptation, the research team relied on a multidisciplinary expert group. To answer company’s requirements a tool was developed making co-workers co-responsible for the worker’s successful work resumption trajectory. To enhance the workers’ own responsibility in the return to work process, a patient return to work diary was designed. To take into account the rising trend in mental health reasons for prolonged sickness absence, the model was opened up to patients irrespectively of the cause of their sickness absence. Belgian employers having limited financial incentives for return to work initiatives when sickness absence periods exceed one month, it was decided to a) implement the model in sectors having difficulties finding suitable personnel due to the labour market scarcity, and b) ask participating companies to commit to fulfil 85% of multidisciplinary work resumption advices and to report in detail on non-followed advices. The Sherbrooke model was mirrored among the Belgian situation and adapted to Belgium’s specific needs. In 2012, the adapted model will be evaluated in a pilot study including five companies employing about 8000 workers in the Antwerp region of Belgium. [less ▲]

Comme l’atteste l’Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale ([INSERM], 2011), il est aujourd’hui devenu nécessaire de pouvoir mieux identifier les sources de stress chez les travailleurs indépendants. Parmi ceux-ci, les dirigeants de Petites et Moyennes Entreprises (PME) sont fréquemment victimes de problèmes de santé liés à une charge physique et mentale élevées (Bournois, Duval-Hamel, Scarengella & Roussillon, 2007 ; Gunnarsson, Vingard & Josephson, 2007). S’appuyant sur ces constats, cette étude a eu pour objectif d’évaluer leur sentiment d’épuisement professionnel et de déterminer les causes de stress spécifiques au milieu entrepreneurial. Pour ce faire, une enquête par questionnaire écrit a été menée à la demande de différentes organisations patronales belges du secteur de la construction et de la vente. [less ▲]

Introduction: Many situations justify a close collaboration between GP, OP and SIP. Health problems impact work activity and vice versa. An altered health situation confronts workers with the risk of exclusion from the labour market. An interprofessional collaboration is thus needed to promote a more active policy of rehabilitation of workers on long term sickness absence. The Belgian Ministry of Employment initiated this study to identify communication channels and tools that could support collaboration among those health professionals. Methods: To this purpose, 8 nominal groups were organised to think about proposals to improve interdisciplinary collaboration. In sum 42 GP’s, 16 OP’s and 16 SIP’s participated in the discussions. For the elaboration of the final proposals, the research team relied on a multidisciplinary expert group. Results: An asymmetric relation was observed; each group expressed the need to receive information from the two others, but proposals to transfer information were rare. Exchanges in the groups showed that reciprocal ignorance is important and communication modalities are poor. A profound revision of the information transmission procedures seemed necessary. Several practical proposals were made to improve communication in case of sickness absence over three months, to allow information transfer and to promote mutual respect between the three disciplines. Other proposals considered professional training, and professional competencies which need to be better defined. Discussion: Misconceptions of the role of the different professional disciplines form a barrier to an effective collaboration. Technical and regulatory measures alone will not bring about a real promotion of interdisciplinary collaboration. The proposals arising from the study will contribute to increase reciprocal knowledge between professionals from the three disciplines and thus form the basis of a more effective collaboration. In turn, the experience of collaboration could have a beneficial effect on the reciprocal representations of each partner role. [less ▲]

Background This study aimed at assessing factors associated to the duration of sickness absence after a back injury in the Belgian working population, with a special emphasis on cultural factors. Methods The data were retrieved from the Belgian Fund for Work Accidents database over a three-year period (2001-2003). The population source involved all Belgian workers under a job contract in the private sector registered as compensated cases for an accident that occurred at the workplace (n=558276). From that database, all back injury cases involving a complete data set and registered during the first 6 months of each year (n= 11262) were selected and eight factors (gender, age, seniority in the current job, job category, accident regional location, enterprise size, sector of activity and accident circumstances) were analyzed in relation to the outcome variable, sick leave duration recorded as ordered time intervals between 0 day and 183-366 days. Results Sick leave duration was strongly associated in a multivariate model to age (>= 40 years: OR=2.18), blue collar job (1.55), work in building industry (1.32) and enterprise size (>100 : 0.85), and to a less extent to seniority (>10y: 0.88), and circumstance of accident (falls: 1.26). Injuries occurring in the French-speaking part of the country were associated to a longer sick leave (1.07; p=0.034). Conclusions This study shows that besides well-known risk factors, subtle cultural language-linked factors and/or regional differences in economic climate may significantly influence the length of disability period after a back injury.

Introduction Face à l’enjeu du maintien dans l’emploi en cas de problème de santé, le médecin du travail et le médecin-conseil de sécurité sociale peuvent jouer un rôle important, mais qu’en pense le patient ? L’étude avait donc pour objectif d’explorer le point du vue du patient afin d’identifier les obstacles et les éléments facilitateurs sur lesquels ces médecins peuvent s’appuyer pour promouvoir le retour au travail. Méthodologie L’étude a comporté l’interview téléphonique de 100 patients recrutés via deux organismes assureurs. Les critères d’inclusion étaient : être en arrêt de travail de longue durée (3 mois< arrêt < 8 mois), bénéficier d’une surveillance de santé en médecine du travail, et accepter de participer à l’étude. Résultats Les principales causes des absences sont les affections mentales (21%), les pathologies rachidiennes (11%) et les traumatismes (16%). Pour pouvoir retourner au travail, 40% des répondants disent attendre un effet du traitement ou une amélioration de leur état et 62% désignent le manque d’amélioration ou l’aggravation de celui-ci comme facteur freinant leur reprise. Un autre facteur est le manque de compréhension des collègues et/ou du chef hiérarchique. La majorité des répondants estiment qu’un travail adapté (diminution de la charge de travail ou des heures prestées, adaptation des horaires,…) faciliterait la reprise. Les répondants ont une perception plutôt négative du médecin du travail: la visite périodique est décrite comme superficielle et brève et peu connaissent le rôle du médecin. La plupart des répondants accepteraient que les médecins en charge de leur dossier se concertent à leur sujet mais s’interrogent quant à l’utilité d’un tel échange. Conclusions L’aide que le médecin du travail peut apporter au patient pour la reprise de travail est largement ignorée et de nombreux obstacles entravent les possibilités de coopération entre médecin du travail et médecin-conseil pour favoriser le maintien dans l’emploi.
