  • Objectives
    The Diploma Program in Disability Management addresses specific goals and objectives for education of disability managers who desire a more extensive background in understanding injury, its impact and recovery processes. In addition, the program responds to changes in workplace health & safety programs, in legislation, regulations, and practices, and in changes in the health system in general. While the main paradigm of the program is grounded in the health, rather than the medical model, its conceptual basis has roots in health and medical sciences, the social sciences, and the physical sciences as related to ergonomics and human kinetics. The goal of the Diploma Program in Disability Management is preparation of Disability Management team members who: provide effective, efficient and safe co-ordination of services, facilitate a team oriented approach, convey understanding of the health impacts of injury, convey an understanding of the impact of injury on work, develop decision-making skills, and develop management skills.
