Topic Overview: Every specialty has its procedure that makes it unique. In occupational medicine, our special skill is in disability management, and the product is an accurate, concise and clear work status report in the form of work restrictions. And yet, there is virtually no science behind the determination of what restrictions are appropriate for a certain worker. Each case stands on its own merits, but there are general principles that can be applied to the return-to-work process. In Part 1 of this series, Dr. Buchta will discuss the foundational principles of disability and presenteesim and how medical providers can foster (or hinder) the process of returning workers back to the workplace at the right time with the right restrictions, if any.


  1. Describe the existing literature supporting medical restrictions in the workplace.
  2. Clarify differences between the major constructs in disability management.
  3. Contrast two different models of disability management.
