Sammanfattning

Objectives Profound changes are ongoing in Swedish sickness insurance and the aim was to study attitudes to strictness of sick-leave rules, work place transfer after 3 months of sick-leave and application for new job after 6 months of sick-leave. Methods Eligible for this questionnaire study was 1,140 individuals aged 19 to 64 years. Attitudes were analysed in relation to age, gender, political ideology and health status. Health status was measured as sick-leave experiences, self-reported health and level of symptoms. Results Forty-two % considered the sick-leave rules to be too strict, 60 % found work place transfer as good while 35 % found that application for new work was good. In logistic regression analyses, high sick-leave experience was associated with increased odds of finding the sick-leave rules too strict (adjusted OR 3.5 [1.9 – 6.3]), and work place transfer (2.3 [1.5–3.6]) and application for new job as not good (2.0 [1.3–3.3]). Conclusion Strong support was found for work place transfer. Earlier research on return to work has found work place interventions to be efficient. From a policy perspective it seems relevant to promote such interventions given the strong public opinion in favor of such interventions.
