ACED officially launches the Job Demands and Accommodation Planning Tool (JDAPT) on March 21, 2023
ACED project director Dr. Monique Gignac will unveil the Job Demands and Accommodation Planning Tool (JDAPT) on March 21, 2023, at an IWH Speaker Series webinar. In this presentation, Dr. Gignac will describe the tool, its development, as well as present data from two studies on the tool. The worker version of the JDAPT is ready to use and has been designed for workers with chronic conditions to learn about potential supports and accommodations specific to their job demands. These range from strategies workers can implement on their own, to accommodations they may need to request more formally. By keeping the focus on job demands, the JDAPT can help workers access support from their employer without having to disclose their health condition. The employer version of the JDAPT that is designed to help employers support workers with chronic conditions, will be available later in 2023.
