Complexities and challenges: working with multiple health conditions

Organisation: The Work Foundation


The Work Foundation addresses the fundamental question of what Good Work means. This report explores the impact of managing multiple health conditions, both for the individual and the employer.

The reports examines the following in detail:

  • What we already know about comorbidities
  • Comorbidities and employment
  • New research into comorbidities and working
  • Implications and recommendations

The conclusion here is positive, and one that all employers should reflect on: for many people with multiple, long-term health conditions, work is a positive part of their lives. This indicates that the ability to manage complex and multiple conditions brings important returns to individuals, employers and society as a whole.
