The research program WORK TOGETHER consists of three parts containing five projects together. The first part will evaluate the reach and effectiveness of an existing occupational health service program over the past 30 years, focusing on underrepresented and high-risk groups. In the second part, the current occupational health service program is to be developed and updated with employees, employers, and occupational health (so-called co-creation). In the third part, the updated program will be implemented, and its efficiency, effectiveness, and the experience of it will be examined.
– Our research program will contribute to developing a more inclusive, efficient, evidence-based, and sustainable occupational health care. We want to reduce health gaps and create a more sustainable working life over time, says Elin Ekblom Bak.
