Summary: (CIT): The presentation reviews recent research carried out by a team of researchers at Harvard Medical School to quantify the workplace costs of illness and the human capital value from the employer perspective of expanded outreach and treatment. A survey tool known as the WHO Health and Work Performance Questionnaire (HPQ), which is now widely-used in workplace Health Risk Appraisal surveys, is described. An example is presented of the HPQ being used to select an intervention target and evaluate the employer return-on-investment of an innovative condition-specific outreach and best-practices treatment program. The presentation closes with a discussion of future directions in workplace social epidemiological research on the costs of illness and the cost-effectiveness of diverse treatment interventions.
