NIH to convene workshop on Total Worker Health — What’s Work Got to Do With It?

(Source – National Institutes of Health)

The National Institutes of Health will convene a Pathways to Prevention workshop to assess the available scientific evidence on the benefits of implementing a Total Worker Health (TWH) approach. TWH promotes bringing together the diversity of relevant programs, including occupational safety and health, worksite health, disability management, workers’ compensation, and human resource benefits. An impartial, independent panel will identify research gaps and future research priorities. The workshop will seek to clarify:

  • What studies exist assessing integrated interventions?
  • What are the known benefits and harms of integrated interventions?
  • What are the characteristics of effective integrated/combined interventions and programs?
  • What factors influence the effectiveness of integrated interventions?
  • What are the key evidence gaps?
