Joan Burton:

Since Joan’s passing in 2014, the OWHC holds this event each year to discuss key workplace issues in workplace health and to commemorate her pioneering work to promote a more comprehensive approach to workplace health. Refreshments will be served and a delicious lunch will follow to provide a chance to network and share ideas.

The Session (topics):

The session will start with what’s new and emerging in workplace health. Then we will focus in on chronic disease in the workplace. Is chronic disease linked to mental health concerns? What are the challenges for employers and employees, and how can employer policies and programs evolve to better address chronic disease and the mental health burden? We will explore perspectives on these questions from employers, workers, unions, and insurers and identify and discuss strategies to prepare for the workplaces of tomorrow.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

1. Name and describe at least three emerging trends and issues in workplace health.
2. Better understand the challenges of chronic disease on both employers and employees and the connection with mental health.
3. Know more about the role of the workplace and be able to identify practical strategies to address the burden and challenges of chronic disease.
