In the first two years, early osteoarthritis of the hip and/or knee has a minor effect on work participation. According to Bieleman, the work adjustments which have put in place for CHECK participants or are desired by them, along with their low functional capacity, indicate that they are at risk of becoming unfit for work and having to quit working prematurely. He therefore recommends monitoring these factors. He also recommends that work should be discussed in every contact between the health professionals and the patient.
Andre Bieleman (Doetinchem, 1964) studied movement sciences at VU University Amsterdam. His research was funded in part by the Reumafonds (Dutch Arthritis Trust). Bieleman works at the Health, Wellbeing and Technology Knowledge Centre (Kenniscentrum Gezondheid, Welzijn en Technologie) of Saxion University of Applied Sciences in Enschede. Saxion will organize a symposium on his PhD results in Enschede on Wednesday 7 July. His thesis is entitled Work participation and work capacity in early osteoarthritis of the hip and knee. His supervisor is Prof. J.W. Groothoff.
