Dr Glykeria Skamagki is Assistant Professor in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. Here, she discusses a new project, providing research findings and resources to support employees with chronic musculoskeletal disorders (CMSDs).
The project aims to support employees with chronic musculoskeletal disorders (CMSDs) at work and provide evidence-based and cost effective strategies to promote sustainable employability.
Management of chronic musculoskeletal disorders at the workplace has become one of the leading themes for research and development worldwide. CMSDs continue to be the main cause of long-term pain and disability, affecting both the individual and the society. We hope to explore how CMSDs relate to sick leave rates, presenteeism and the phenomenon of leaveism.
