Work as a health outcome

Working can help people have a sense of fulfilment and purpose. The RCN, the AoMRC and the Association of allied health professionals have supported this consensus statement to support all health care professionals and encourage health care practitioners to consider how best to support people back to work or engage in activity. See the report on the Good Work is Good for You conference summary.

The new Work and Health e-learning from PHE and HEE will support health care professionals to make brief interventions such as discussing the health benefits of work with patients, talking about returning to work and advising on adjustments at work.
