The relationship between health and work is widely recognized as complex and multifaceted. In the context of an aging population, our ability to enable individuals with health issues to continue working is becoming more critical. Addressing these current policy concerns, Work, Health and Wellbeing brings together new, original research from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to investigate how we can define and act on a biopsychosocial model of ill health to improve work participation in middle and later life.
Sarah Vickerstaff is professor of work and employment at the University of Kent. 

Chris Phillipson is professor of sociology and social gerontology at the University of Manchester.

Ross Wilkie is RCUK Fellow in epidemiology at the Arthritis Research UK National Primary Care Center at Keele University.

“This book works very well as a collection of different perspectives on health in the workplace. It offers a wide range of material that is scholarly and written by people with expertise in their areas of interest.”


— Chris Yuill

“The material for this book comes from a network of academics and professionals undertaking research about managing health conditions at work. . . . The interdisciplinary nature of the network recognizes the complexity of the issues. . . . Despite the UK focus, it is likely many of the challenges faced could inform future efforts to deal with similar workplace challenges in Canada.”
