Doctoral student at the Unit of Intervention & Implementation Research for Worker Health.
The aim of my doctoral studies is to evaluate the effectiveness and the ethics of a problem-solving intervention in an employed population on sick-leave due to common mental disorders (PROSA). The intervention is given by trained rehabilitation coordinators at primary care centers and includes employer involvement during the rehabilitation process.
The research will investigate 1) If the intervention is more effective compared to care as usual in reducing the total number of days on sick-leave during the 18-month follow up. 2) If the intervention is more effective compared to care as usual in reducing short-term sick-leave and recurrent sick-leave periods after return-to-work. 3) Facilitating and hindering factors towards the intervention and 4) Ethical considerations towards the intervention.
As common mental disorders are one of the leading causes of sick leave in Sweden, we expect this research to contribute to important knowledge regarding the intervention, the rehabilitation process and if successful, to be implemented on a larger scale.
