How to reintegrate people with chronic pain into society by going back to work

"We need to focus on people's abilities, not on the constraints"

Dr. Saskia Decuman, ergotherapist and expert from the Belgium Institute for Public Sickness Insurance and Handicaps (RIZIV), has been convinced of the benefits to reintegrate people with chronic pain into work for a long time. It is now time for recommendations to be transposed into policy guidelines.

The Knowledge Centre of the RIZIV, led by Dr. Saskia Decuman, has been working closely with the international multi-stakeholder platform SIP (Societal Impact of Pain) for a long time. In this way, the centre seeks to bring the results of the re-integration of people with chronic pain into concrete input into the society and provide its expertise to the SIP platform.
