Health Work
  • The evidence tells us that there are
    considerable costs associated with (long term)
    unemployment.
  • At the individual level
  • Significantly more ill health (physical and
    psychological) and an increase in the likelihood
    of an early death from preventable disease or by
    suicide
  • At a societal level
  • Higher costs for medical and social care and
    economic loss of income tax returns

Is work good for health?
  • Being in work is one of a range of factors
    recognised to influence good health
  • For most adults of working age, including those
    with disabilities and common health problems, a
    return to work can
  • promote recovery and aid rehabilitation
  • improve physical and mental health and wellbeing
  • reduce social exclusion and poverty
  • (Waddell G, Burton AK. Is work good for
    your health and well-being? 2006)

Employability
  • Employability encompasses all the things that
    enable people to increase their chances of
    getting a job, staying in, and progressing
    further, in work.
  • Scottish Government, Workforce Plus, 2006
  • For each individual, there will be different
    reasons why they are not achieving what they
    would like in employment.

Asking About Work
  • Asking your patients about work is an opportunity
    to improve their health chances.
  • When with a patient his/her employment status can
    be gathered both formally and informally
  • You and your team will decide when best to
    incorporate this on the care pathway.
