There is a need to develop interventions to support returning to work for patients with long-term time sick absence due to diffuse health problems. In a pilot project 30 persons with long sickness absence (mean 6 yrs) met with a motivational coach at three different occasions to go through their life history, present health situation and psychosocial/social situation. An action plan was formed by the participants and was after the intervention communicated to representatives from the social insurance office and the employment office to create a mutual understanding and facilitate the search for an employer. At evaluation after one year 27% of participants had returned to part- or full-time work and another 23% were in work training or rehabilitation activities but with a fairly good prognosis to return to work in the future. Mean MADRS-score and self-rated health had improved at the one-year follow up.
