The 34th International Congress on Occupational Health will be held in Marrakesh, Morocco from 28 April to 3 May 2024

Work Disability Prevention and Integration research will be a feature of the program. Following is a summary of WDPI specific activity. In addition there will be many other WDPI-relevant plenary and semi-plenary presentations, workshops, free paper and poster sessions.

Professor Mette Stockendahl is leading a special session titled “Stay at Work for workers with chronic pain conditions”

The WDPI Scientific Committee has worked with the congress organisers to ensure two WDPI themed free papers sessions. These are on the topics of

  1. Determinants in Work Disability”

  2. Work Disability Prevention – Policies, Interventions Strategies and Implementation Issues”

More than 60 abstract submissions were received for the two free paper sessions. This means there will also be many WDPI themed poster presentations during the congress, as not all abstract submissions were able to be offered an oral / free paper presentation.

In addition members of the WDPI SC have submitted abstracts to other free paper sessions of relevance.

We would like to sincerely thank those members of the WDPI scientific community who generously assisted with abstract reviews for the free paper sessions.

We plan to also organise a social event for WDPI colleagues attending the Congress. More information to come. 

All of the Congress information can be found on the webiste, via the link below
