The Musculoskeletal (MSK) Health toolkit for employers and further education institutions – how to support adolescents and young adults to a better future here
The toolkit was developed in collaboration with the British Society for Rheumatologists and the Society of Occupational Medicine (SOM) alongside clinical experts, patient representatives groups, college and university representative and young people themselves.
Its main aims are to:
- help employers and FE institutions understand the part they play in preventing MSK conditions
- set out how employers and FE institutions can support young people with chronic MSK conditions to realise their potential, thrive and remain in work or education.
The toolkit sets out practical advice for employers and FE institutions to help adolescents and young people maintain good MSK health and help those with existing MSK conditions to thrive in their environment. Attached are some graphics which can be used on social media. There’s also a recording of a SOM webinar promoting the new resource which can be viewed here:
