Femke Abma defends PhD thesis on work functioning

On 31 October Femke Abma, PhD student in PredSL PI Ute Bültmann’s group, will defend her thesis entitled ‘Work functioning development and evaluation of a measurement tool’.

In recent years, a change in the attention of occupational healthcare in the Netherlands from return-to-work towards stay-at-work has occurred. The shift towards stay at work requires new interventions and measures to assess effectiveness of interventions and to monitor work functioning. The thesis describes the development of a generic instrument that evaluates health-related work functioning to facilitate actions towards optimal functioning at work, sustainable work participation and work reintegration. The full press release is available from the RuG website.
