Publication year 2001 Abstract To restore the work capacity of persons with a chronic disease work(place) adjustments can help. This study aims to quantify the presence of work adjustments among chronically ill workers in the Netherlands. Also it aims to investigate the extent to which the presence of work adjustments are related to the experience of work-interfering problems, disease characteristics or work characteristics. Data for this study are derived from the Dutch Panel of Patients with Chronic Diseases. The results, discussed in this article, relate to data collected in 1999 from a representative sample of 556 working people with various chronic somatic diseases. Of the work-interfering problems, the ones related to physical disabilities, concentration or memory deficits and transportation emerged as the most important factors related to the presence of work adjustments. In addition, higher age and lower educational level were associated with a higher probability of immaterial adjustments; pain, attack frequency and physical demands of job were important predictors of material work adjustments.
