European Guide to Good Practice (Guidelines)
Since chronic illnesses exist in a wide variety and their impact is highly individualized, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all-approach. Nevertheless, a range of practical solutions can be developed.
The good practice guidelines are addressed to employers and managers in a European brochure proposing a step-by-step approach, on how to support employees with a chronic illness who still have a valuable contribution to make to the European workforce.
The guide is called "Promoting healthy work for workers with chronic illness: A guide to good practice", is easy to read and discusses the following topics:
|A good practice guide on chronic illness at work|
|What is meant by workplace health promotion, return to work and chronic illness in the context of sustainable employment?|
|What employers can do to promote healthy work|
|What you can do: A six-step action plan|
The guide to good practice also contains a list of the project's participants, useful links to websites, references and a check list on manager support for return to work.
