Principles and Practices of Disability Management in Industry is the most comprehensive, multidisciplinary coverage of disability management strategies, interventions, and services ever put together. The presentation is highly practical, yet scholarly.

The content consists of the very latest practices within disability management that have universal applications. In addition, there is coverage that represents the interests of workers with injuries and disabilities, such as employers, health care providers, attorneys, unions, and other organizations, and educators. Within this book lies the foundation for protecting the employability of workers with disabilities, while offering blueprints for controlling the rapidly escalating costs of injury and disability in the workplace.
The usefulness of Principles and Practices of Disability Management in Industry cannot be overstated. Within its covers are hundreds of references for practitioners, human resources managers, educators, researchers, and others involved in the development, implementation, and evaluation of disability management and transitional work programs for injured workers.
Principles and Practices of Disability Management in Industry is an ideal tool for the professional, an excellent text for the educator, and practical in every sense. It provides up-to-date information and is sensitive to the needs and demands of the disability management movement throughout the world.
