Abstract

CEBALLOS-GRANADOS, Catalina; YEPES-DELGADO, Carlos Enrique  and  JIMENEZ-OYUELA, Claudia. EXPERIENCES IN LABOR RECONVERSION: WORKERS ATTENDING A SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE IN COLOMBIA. Hacia promoc. Salud [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.2, pp.75-90. ISSN 0121-7577.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/hpsal.2019.24.2.7.

Objective:

to describe the experiences of the process of reconversion of labor in patients with occupational pathology who attended the Comprehensive Social Security Office of the Faculty of Medicine at Universidad de Antioquia.

Methodology:

some techniques from the Grounded Theory for simultaneous data collection and analysis were used. Eight semi-structured interviews were conducted with patients who agreed to participate. The information was transcribed and analyzed using the open and axial coding of the Grounded Theory.

Results:

patients described multiple failures in their experience during the processes of rehabilitation and labor reintegration as well as limitations for labor and social inclusion at the workplace and in society after a work-related incident.

Conclusions:

Reconvention of the workforce is not guaranteed for the patients who participated in this study. In Colombia, regulations concerning it are not consistent with the life experiences of those participating in this study. It is important to discuss this issue from other points of view such as those of companies and occupational risk insurance providers in order to better understand the career mobility situation of our patients.

Keywords : Career mobility; rehabilitation vocational; disabled persons; disability evaluation; work capacity evaluation.
