Étape 3 sur 11 de la préparation au retour au travail :

 

Une fois évaluées les aptitudes au travail du patient, il faut déterminer les obstacles qu’il pourra rencontrer lors de son retour au travail et, si possible, les écarter.

Ces obstacles peuvent englober les traitements médicaux, la gestion des symptômes et la réadaptation (avec traitement psychologique au besoin). L’orientation du patient vers d’autres professionnels (pour, entre autres, la gestion de la douleur et des symptômes, la réadaptation, le soutien psychologique, la réadaptation professionnelle et le travail social) contribuera à réduire ou écarter ces problèmes. Il est possible de trouver ces professionnels dans le système de santé, la communauté et en pratique privée.
