Aim of the study: We examined if the work-related treatment dose has changed in 2014 than compared to 2012, if the work-related treatment dose differed between common medical rehabilitation (MR) and work-related medical rehabilitation (WMR), and if the therapy recommendations for WMR were met in Northern Germany rehabilitation centres in 2014. Material and methods: Patients who were treated in WMR or conventional medical rehabilitation in 2014 were matched with patients treated in 2012 by using propensity scores. Results: Patients who were treated in WMR in 2014 received more work-related interventions than comparable patients in 2012 (13.5 vs. 2.5 h) and MR patients in 2014 (13.5 vs. 1.2 h). 30 min of social counselling, 180 min of work-related psychological groups and 360 min of work-related functional capacity training were realised for 93.8, 82 and 41% of the patients participating in WMR in 2014 Conclusion: WMR programs in Northern Germany meet the recommendations of the WMR guideline.
