Outcomes in contact dermatitis

August 9, 2001 - 3:23 pm

We were interested in learning more about outcomes (disease-related, functional, and quality of life) for workers following a diagnosis of WRCD; the return to work process (including the roles of the injured worker, employer, health care providers, and others), and any workplace modifications made to accommodate the worker with WRCD; and workers’ compensation for WRCD. One hundred workers with hand dermatitis were enrolled at the St. Michael’s Hospital Occupational Health Clinic (Toronto), and were followed for 6 months post-assessment. We collected information through questionnaires at the time of diagnosis, and at 3 and 6 months.
