A workers’ compensation experience study is looking to speak to those who provide services to injured and ill workers in Thunder Bay and District. A few weeks ago we posted about a new research study looking at the mental health needs of injured workers in Thunder Bay and District. The study is a partnership with Lakehead University, Thunder Bay and District Injured Worker Support Group and Injured Workers Community Legal Clinic.
The goal of the study is to help improve services to injured and ill workers involved in the WSIB process. It has been approved by the Research Ethics Board of Lakehead University.
The researchers, Drs. Deborah Scharf and Anna Kone, would also like to speak to people who provide services to injured and ill workers in Thunder Bay and District, for example health care, social services, legal workers or unions. You can download the poster here [link].
Injured and ill workers and service providers in the area can contact the researchers at (807)343-8563 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to set up an interview.
