We conducted in-depth interviews with members of Ontario police services (sworn and civilian) who have experience with work absence and RTW. A thematic analysis was used for the qualitative interview data. Five themes emerged describing key aspects of the RTW process: Accommodation, Communication, Trust-building, as well as Context and Culture. Details and illustrative quotes provide practical information about how to improve the RTW process in policing.
