Individual placement and support for young adults at risk of early work disability (the SEED trial)

A randomized controlled trial

A randomized controlled trial was conducted of individual placement and support (IPS) for young adults with various social or health-related problems at risk of work disability. The odds of gaining competitive employment were 10.39 (95% CI 2.79-38.68) times higher for IPS than traditional vocational rehabilitation (48% versus 8%). IPS shows promise for early intervention diverting young adults from disability to employment.
