Abstract

It is becoming increasingly apparent to rehabilitation and health researchers that employment is linked to health-related quality of life (HRQOL) outcomes in people with chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions including those with fibromyalgia (FM). This study evaluated relationships between employment status and HRQOL outcomes in adults with FM (N=198). This study found employment, both full- and part-time, significantly predicted a number of health-related outcomes. Participants especially those with full-time employment had the least amount of secondary health conditions and better overall functioning, HRQOL, and life satisfaction in comparison to participants without employment. Therefore, rehabilitation health professionals should consider offering health promotion and vocational rehabilitation interventions to people with FM to help them stay at work for as long as possible.
