BACKGROUND: Health risk assessments (HRA) are used by many organisations as a basis for developing relevant and targeted employee health and well-being interventions. However, many HRA's have a western-centric focus and therefore it is unclear whether the results can be directly extrapolated to those from non-western countries. More information regarding the differences in the associations between country status and health risks is needed along with a more global perspective of employee health risk factors and well-being overall...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Previous studies have shown declines in productivity due to chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) are correlated with disease-specific quality-of-life (QOL) measures. However, it is unclear which symptom domains contribute primarily to productivity loss. This investigation sought to assess the association between CRS-specific QOL subdomain impairment and productivity loss. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, multi-institutional, observational cohort study. METHODS: There were 198 patients with refractory CRS enrolled between August 2012 and June 2015...

The objective was to assess the cost of Medication Overuse Headache (MOH) at the time-point of withdrawal treatment. We implemented a protocol in which both direct and indirect cost were directly gathered from patients and referred to the previous three months. Direct costs were calculated by medications for acute treatment and prophylaxis, diagnostic procedures, visits, complementary treatments, informal care. Indirect costs were referred to missed workdays and workdays with reduced productivity: we asked patients to refer their salaries and to rate the overall level of performance in days worked with reduced productivity, and we calculated indirect costs on this basis...

BACKGROUND: Health care personnel (HCP) working while experiencing influenza-like illness (ILI) contribute to influenza transmission in health care settings. Studies focused on certain HCP occupations or work settings have demonstrated that some HCP often continue to work while ill. METHODS: Using a national nonprobability Internet panel survey of 1,914 HCP during the 2014-2015 influenza season, we calculated the frequency of working with self-reported ILI (ie, fever and cough or sore throat) and examined reasons for working with ILI by occupation and work setting...

BACKGROUND: Musculoskeletal disorders are a major health problem resulting in negative effects on wellbeing and substantial costs to society. Work participation is associated with positive benefits for both mental and physical health. Potentially, generalist physical therapists (GPTs) can play an important role in reducing absenteeism, presenteeism and associated costs in patients with musculoskeletal disorders. However, work participation is often insufficiently addressed within generalist physical therapy practice (GPTP)...
