(NICE) Workplace health: long-term sickness absence and capability to work (Update)

31 May 2019

This guideline covers how to help people return to work after long-term sickness absence, reduce recurring sickness absence, and how to prevent people moving from short-term to long-term sickness absence.

This is an excellent opportunity for the BPS to provide a solid psychological evidence base and make sure that up to date research is included in the forming of new recommendations which have not been updated since 2009.
