Mary Stergiou-Kita, PhD
Returning to work following complex injuries and illnesses (brain, electrical, cancer) can be a complex process. Developing effective return to work plans requires an understanding of how worker (personal/ work-related), work, and workplace factors can influence successful return to work and work maintenance.
Drawing from her research and work experience as an occupational therapist, Dr. Stergiou-Kita will examine effective strategies for ensuring return to work success in complex populations, and how integrating evidence from clients, providers and employers can enhance building a shared understanding.
