Supporting the healthcare & mobility of injured & disabled workers


In a webinar, Anne Hudon (Assistant Professor, Université de Montréal, Faculty of Medicine) and Dana Howse (Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University) will address work disability policy and practices supporting the healthcare and mobility of injured and disabled workers. Specifically, the researchers will examine which healthcare professionals are recognized by workers’ compensation boards and why is this relevant to the care and return-to-work experience of injured workers, as well as how  work disability policy frameworks and programs support or impede Canadians with physical disabilities to engage in work-related travel, or ‘work mobility’.

Katherine Lippel (Distinguished Research Chair in Occupational Health and Safety Law, University of Ottawa, Law Faculty, Civil Law section) will lead a discussion.
