This manual is designed to support the use of the UK Work experience Survey - Rheumatic Conditions (UK WES-RC). The WES-RC is a structured interview tool to identify work-related barriers and formulate solutions to these. It can be administered anywhere, it addresses a broad range of workplace barriers (in addition to work station and task barriers), and it was originally designed for all types of disabilities. The WES-RC can be administered through either a face-to-face or telephone interview. After collecting background information about their employment, the administrator helps the client identify work barriers using the WES-RC checklists, to prioritize these barriers and form solutions for those the client considers the most significant barriers. The UK WES-RC Manual is adapted from the original WES manual (with permission) developed by Prof R Roessler, University of Arkansas, USA. The UK-WES-RC assessment was modified (with permission) from the original WES-RC developed by Prof Saralynn Allaire, University of Boston, USA (Allaire and Keysor 2009).
