Work rehabilitation is a broad term that encompasses many aspects of intervention, all geared toward facilitating participation in work and satisfactory fulfilment of the worker role.

The goals of work rehabilitation are to:

  • Maximize levels of function following injury and/or illness to maintain a desired quality of life for the worker
  • Facilitate the safe and timely return of individuals to work following injury and/or illness
  • Remediate and/or prevent future injury or illness
  • Assist individuals in retaining or resuming their worker role, which can contribute to self-confidence and a view of self as a productive member in society, and prevent the negative psychosocial consequences of unemployment.
