Training workshop – Disability Management
October 28, 2020
Evidence based practice highlights the need to use an integrative approach in maintaining people at work or to reintegrate them in the labour market. One of the most critical success factors is having an actor coordinating the Return To Work (RTW) progress. The Disability Management (DM) represents a response to this need.
The National Institute for Disability Management and Research (NIDMAR, Canada) has developed this integrative approach over many years and a related curriculum to certify professionals in DM. DM is built on 2 pillars (systematic approach for companies and coordination effort among individuals) and is organized by 10 principles.
The Belgian National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (NIHDI) concluded an agreement with NIDMAR to use the methodology, materials, qualification and started in 2014 with the implementation of DM adapted to the Belgian context with the aim to provide professionals new skills in DM.

How can funding programmes like Horizon 2020 provide avenues for diaconal organisations to engage in partnerships with different actors and contribute their unique experience to different research projects?
