Musculoskeletal conditions are one of the main reasons for absence in the workplace. Come and hear from Professor Karen WalkerBone about the latest developments on this topical issue, and find out more about the power of prevention for keeping people happy, healthy and in work. See how changing our behaviours, by moving more, and maintaining a healthy weight can have a massive impact on productivity and long term health. And for employers it is important to understand how to support and manage someone with an MSK condition so that everyone in the workplace can be as productive and fulfilled as possible.
