Together with colleagues from the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam and TNO in Leiden, Sandra Brouwer, Sander van Zon and Patricia Ots examined the role of health behaviours and working conditions on early exit from paid employment among workers with chronic diseases. Data from the Lifelines Cohort Study, the Study on Transitions in Employment, Ability and Motivation (STREAM), and Statistics Netherlands were used. Results of the studies are now available in a summary report and infographic (in Dutch). Would you like to know more about this research or the results contact Patrica
