Abstract

This paper discusses findings from Wainwright et al (2014) (research with doctors and patients) and Wainwright et al (2013) (research with employers and employees) into issues and potential ameliorating factors regarding sickness certification and return to work processes for chronic pain patients and stakeholders. They found that fit notes were perceived to be helpful if used in combination with other strategies for managing sick leave and RTW for people with chronic pain. These strategies may be applicable to other fluctuating, long-term conditions with medically unexplained elements.
