Understanding job demands is a fundamental part of developing rehabilitation programs for injured workers, yet clinicians sometimes struggle to access quality information. This 2-hour program helps clinicians evaluate commonly encountered examples of job information and decide how to generate the most resource appropriate description of baseline work demands. Conversational interviewing will be discussed, as well as strategies to triangulate data and validate job information to optimize content validity.
At the end of the training, participants will be able to –
1. Describe 3 common components of job descriptions that are relevant to care plan development in worker rehabilitation
2. Discuss 1 option to overcome each of the information deficits commonly encountered in job descriptions including limited data on relevant functional tasks, quality of physical demands and employee involvement.
3. Describe 2 sources of publicly available standardized job information available to clinicians.
4. Summarize 4 benefits of using conversational interviewing to obtain job information from workers
5. List 4 sources of data clinicians can use to cross validate/triangulate job data
