Injury and Illness


While we all strive to be healthy, a medical circumstance may arise that requires us to temporarily be away for work. A personal illness or injury is often stressful for the individual involved and in some cases, is also difficult for the department/work unit and ones co-workers.

The University of Alberta in partnership with Homewood Health Inc. provides many services and resources to; support health recovery and ensure a safe, healthy, sustainable return to work and/or stay at work for faculty/staff members and support stability and productivity within the work unit and for the institution.
