This study analysed the impact of several factors on the start and duration of time off work among 802 patients with occupational hand injuries, in order to identify prognostic indicators. The study showed that external factors such as work and social condition seemed to have less influence on time off work than expected, whereas advice from doctors, flashbacks and impairment symptoms were important determinants.
