The experiences of migrant workers after a work-related injury: A qualitative study from Toronto, Canada Other events...
Agnieszka Kosny has a PhD in Public Health (University of Toronto) and has worked as a Scientist at the Institute for Work & Health in Toronto, Canada. She is a qualitative researcher and her research has primarily focused on examining the experiences of new migrants after a work-related injury. During this presentation Agnieszka Kosny will discuss findings from a study examining migrant workers’ experiences after a work-related injury, including their experiences with the workers’ compensation board, health care providers and employers. One practical outcome of this study was the developed of a tool for migrants and staff at settlement agencies in Ontario, Canada. The purpose of the tool was to better prepare migrant workers for entry into the labour market by providing information about occupational health & safety and workers’ compensation. Agnieszka will also discuss plans for a study examining the employment preparation process of migrants coming to Australia.
