Arthritis Research UK-MRC Centre in Reducing Workplace Disability from Musculoskeletal Disorders

Lead Research Organisation: Arthritis Research UK

Abstract

Musculoskeletal disorders are one of the two main causes of incapacity for work in the UK, accounting for loss of 10 million working days per year at a cost of £7b. Currently, however, there are major deficiencies in the scientific evidence to inform policies and interventions aimed at reducing this burden. We aim to establish a world-leading centre, addressing major research questions to minimise the adverse impacts of musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace, with benefits for patients, workers, employers, and society at large. We propose an integrative, cross-disciplinary centre of excellence, which will:
1. Identify cost-effective ways to minimise the substantial adverse impacts of musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace.
2. Build capacity in employment-related research by training a future generation of researchers.
3. Establish a national resource for advice on musculoskeletal disorders and work, accessible to all stakeholders, and actively promoting best practice. It will build on the success of previous and on-going collaborations, and establish new links to bring in complementary perspectives and skills.

Technical Summary

We aim to establish a world-leading centre, addressing major research questions to minimise the adverse impacts of musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace, with benefits for patients, workers, employers, and society at large. We propose an integrative, cross-disciplinary centre of excellence, which will:
1. Identify cost-effective ways to minimise the substantial adverse impacts of musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace.
2. Build capacity in employment-related research by training a future generation of researchers.
3. Establish a national resource for advice on musculoskeletal disorders and work, accessible to all stakeholders, and actively promoting best practice.
Research will focus on the main musculoskeletal causes of work impairment (non-specific musculoskeletal pain, osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis) along with a more generic theme addressing the implications of musculoskeletal disorders for working to older ages.

The Centre will be based at University of Southampton, with “spokes” at eight other institutions.

The output of the Council includes Command Papers laid before parliament and published advice to Ministers. In the past 5 years, IIAC has produced 34 reports (13 with KP as lead author), nine of which have led to changes to the law on social security compensation, affecting patients with knee osteoarthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchiolitis, and cancers of lung, nasopharynx and nasal sinuses. IIAC reports also create an official list of diseases adopted by HSE to guide prevention and statutory reporting. of occupational illness.

Impact Committee Member: Keith became a member of WHEC in 2015 and continues to be a member in 2017 WHEC is a scientific and medical expert committee whose purpose is to consider the evidence linking workplace hazards to ill health. Working under the leadership of an independent expert Chair, it considers chemical and physical hazards, and human, behavioural or organisational factors in the workplace (for example shift work) leading to physiological and psychological ill health. It does not consider wellbeing, sickness absence management or rehabilitation as these issues are dealt with elsewhere in government. Nor is it able to consider individual cases of ill health. WHEC will assess the evidence base concerning health issues within its remit and will seek to effectively and appropriately communicate the resultant health risk.
