What Works and Looking Ahead: A Comparative Study of UK and US Policies and Practices Facilitating Return to Work for People with Disabilities
Thornton, Patricia; Zietzer, Ilene; Bruyere, Susanne M. Dr.; Golden, Thomas P.; Houtenville, Andrew J.
Independent research organizations in the US and the UK were commissioned to review the research on ‘what works’ in facilitating return to work for people with disabilities, and to consider current developments in the light of the evidence. They produced two background papers for the UK/US Pathways to Work in the 21st Century Seminar. This paper aims to summarize the key points of interest in those US and UK papers. The view expressed here are those of the authors.
