Institute of Occupational Medicine survey

The Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) are trying to identify and collate guidance used to manage chronic musculoskeletal problems and what advice is available to try and retain people at work or return them to work.  What they mean by chronic musculoskeletal problems are people whose symptoms persist for three months or more including chronic back pain or chronic upper limb disorders, as well as rheumatic diseases, degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis or osteoporosis or non-specific pain syndromes.
