Occupational Health, Work, and Wellbeing

Occupational health, work, and wellbeing: time and space dimensions to policy over the life course.

Maintaining people in work may be the focus of occupational health, yet the need for care in general and rehabilitation support in particular places a range of pressures on families. Flexible working and policies to support carers remain partial and inadequately applied and used. Why does it prove difficult, if not impossible, to created links across the social science and policy arenas of health, work, and care? This study builds on previous research on organisations, care and work to address the partial and short-term nature of evidence selection. Furthermore, how time and space considerations can be encouraged in the analysis of social science evidence and formation of policy will be examined. With Linda McKie and Andrew Fletcher.
