Interventions used to impact sick leave

-          An analysis of approaches

This review concerns intervention research published during the 21st century where the purpose of the interventions was to impact sick leave in work life. The aim of this review was to create a systematic chart of interventions published in scientific journals during the period mentioned above. A second aim was to analyze the procedures in the papers and their overall goal concerning their interventions for papers published in year 2003. The papers were analyzed through Blake and Moutons’ model of intervention approaches. The review resulted in 60 scientific papers with intervention research concerning sick leave. During year 2003, 17 papers were published concerning this topic, which was the most during any year in the 21st century.  The intervention approach that was most common was the “ prescriptive interventions” (n=11). One explanation for this could be that many of the interventions (n=7) were carried out in a health care arena that has a long tradition of an expert authority relation towards the client. Twelve of the papers described disease prevention interventions and five described health promotion interventions. None of the 17 papers had a qualitative approach, which is noteworthy since it has been recommended that a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches is the best method in intervention evaluation.
