In this section about research methodology the lecture by Kerstin Ekberg will present how work disability prevention interventions can be evaluated. Followed by Ute Bültmanns lecture about implementing interventions and measure outcomes. The last lecture in this section is by Christian Ståhl and discusses qualitative research methods in evaluation research.

Intervention studies, though time consuming, are worth the effort. Reasons for conducting intervention studies are provided as well as problems and challenges encountered in work disability prevention research. When evaluating intervention studies not only the effect but also the process should be evaluated.

Cross-jurisdictional studies are complex and require a common language and terminology. It is important to reach out to other jurisdictions to learn more about policies and practices in different contexts.
