Research alerts are provided by the Library Department at the Institute for Work & Health to help people keep abreast of recent literature in the areas of occupational health and safety, return to work, workers' compensation, public health and others within the IWH mandate. Every week, IWH librarians identify English-language articles from researchers around the world and include them in a weekly alert. For each journal article identified, the title, authors and abstract are included.
Please note that the journal articles included in these research alerts have not been reviewed by Institute scientists to assess the quality of the studies, and the inclusion of an article should not be considered an endorsement of its findings. Readers are cautioned not to act on the results of single studies, but rather to seek bodies of evidence.
