Over 120 speakers from almost every corner of the globe will be presenting the latest findings on how employees can be returned to vocational life following sickness. Besides generic topics, the programme covers numerous talks on subjects such as issues specific to older employees, psychosocial disorders, and cancer. Other topics are particular requirements in production, the service sector, and the public sector.

The 2008 IFDM is aimed particularly at delegates from employers' and employees' groups, experts from companies and state institutions, researchers, providers of prevention and rehabilitation services, insurance institutions, disability managers, legal experts, business managers, medical doctors, psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers.
