Conceal or Reveal?

We need your help in better understanding how you support employees with chronic health conditions, while also balancing privacy needs.

We would like to speak to managers or supervisors with experience in meeting the needs of employees with chronic physical or mental health conditions, as part of a research study by the Institute for Work & Health and the University of Toronto on accommodation and communication in the workplace for people with chronic episodic conditions.  

The study consists of a confidential interview (30-40 minutes) over the phone. Your participation will help us create practical tools and resources for workplaces to sustain the employment of people with chronic, episodic conditions. 

For more information, please contact Dr. Monique Gignac and the project coordinator, Julie Bowring to find out more or to arrange an interview:, 1-855-884-1416.

This study, Accommodating and Communicating about Episodic Disabilities (ACED): A Partnership to Deliver Workplace Tools and Resources to Sustain the Employment of People with Chronic, Episodic Conditions, is funded by Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada under the Healthy and Productive Work Partnership grant.
