The process of empowering ability in disability requires that each one of us be mindful that other than some very catastrophic injuries, all individuals regardless of the injury have some ability that can lead to productive and fulfilling life. This means independence in personal, social and economic aspects of life. Health-care providers and others need to be honest and frank in their discussions with injured workers regarding the need to live a productive life by return to function at their earliest.

Learning Objectives:
Describe the critical terms in return to function issues
Discuss how to analyze return to work issues with scientific evidence
Summarize the steps involved in an honest and frank communication with the injured worker about return to function
Explain how to negotiate return to function with the injured person and others
