Utilization of a Labor Force Participation Model in the Assessment of Quality Employment Outcomes for Individuals with Multiple Sclerosis

Presenter: James Krause, Ph.D., Professor & Associate Dean for Research in the College of Health Professions, Medical University of South Carolina

Date & Time: 2/15/2018, 2:00-2:45pm Eastern

This webcast will focus on employment after physical disability for individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) by applying econometric models to key quality employment outcomes. The econometric model considers two general sets of factors: 1.) those related to attributable differences in outcomes and 2.) those related to potential policy effects.

The former are measured by demographic and disability characteristics and may be used to identify those who should be targeted for intervention. Whereas, policy factors represent a much broader group of variables that may more directly become the targets for policy related intervention strategies. These include psychological, socio-environmental, behavioral, and health factors. The presenter will describe data related to employment status and earnings with the goal of laying the foundation for targeting individuals in need of intervention and the evaluation of the importance of various factors to optimizing outcomes.
