DMHR 550: Introduction to Disability Management from a Human Resources Perspective

This course provides an overview of disability management from a human resources perspective. It explores the field of disability management, the goals of a disability management program, and the key concepts that underlie an effective disability management program. Disability management is a broad area that includes not only return-to-work coordination but also the interactions among return to work and rehabilitation, compensation, prevention and health and wellness prevention programs.

Human resources professionals will gain an understanding of the linkages between human resource management and disability management; the benefits that DM programs bring to both the organization and worker; and the steps needed to develop or improve a program.
