Happy Thanksgiving Week to our readers! We at the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (OHWC) are excited to announce our FY22 annual report. In this report, we highlight OHWC research, outreach, education, and dissemination activities during the first year of our new cycle (2021-2026) as a Total Worker Health® Center of Excellence.
As we kick off OHWC’s newest cycle, we’re happy to see our new research projects take off: Work-life Check-ins: Work-life Check-ins: A Total Worker Health supervisor-driven burnout intervention (led by Drs. David Hurtado & Abigail Lenhart); A natural experiment for the impact of work schedule on cardiovascular health and safety in firefighters (short name Shiftwork in Firefighters/SWIFT, led by Dr. Nicole Bowles); Translating an intervention to address chronic pain among home care workers (short name COMPASS for Navigating Pain/COMPASS-NP, led by Dr. Ryan Olson); and Development and Validation of a Total Worker Health Climate Scale (led by Dr. Emily Huang). Other program impact spotlights include our efforts to build capacity in Total Worker Health (TWH) practice, address the escalating mental health crisis in our workforce, advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in our worker safety, health, and well-being work, and celebrate awards and new members at OHWC. Learn about our outreach activities, community partnerships, education events, and dissemination efforts.
In our current cycle, we also welcome new and returning members to our External Advisory Committee and thank our many partners and stakeholders who continue to bolster our work. Feel free to reach out us as you read about our work, we’re happy to hear your thoughts and welcome your comments.
