    Article - En anglais


    (1) To demonstrate a relationship between intent to return to preinjury job and preinjury job perceptions about that job ; and (2) to demonstrate that worker compensation chronic pain patients (WC CPPs) would be more likely than non-worker compensation chronic pain patients (NWC CPPs) not to intend to return to a preinjury type of job because of preinjury job perceptions.

    Study Design 

    The relationship between preinjury job perceptions and intent to return to the preinjury job was investigated and compared between worker compensation (WC) and nonworker compensation (NWC) chronic pain patients (CPPs).

    Within the WC and NWC groups CPPs not intending to return to their preinjury type of work were compared to those CPPs intending to return on preinjury job perception.

    Background Data 

    Compensation status, being a WC CPPs or being a non-WC CPPs, has been claimed to be predictive or not predictive of return to work post pain treatment.

    These studies have, however, ignored the preinjury job stress perception variable as an area of research.


    WC CPPs were age-and sex-matched to NWC CPPs and statistically compared on their responses to rating scale and yes/no questionnaires for intent to return to work and perceived preinjury job stress.

    In a second analysis, both the WC and NWC groups were divided according to their intent to return to work and statistically compared on their responses to these questionnaires.
