ABSTRACT

In this summary chapter, we will consider the current status with respect to occupational stress and its prevention in the var ious countr ies that are discussed in this book (section 15.2). Next, we will compare and evaluate the eleven cases that are presented in Chapters 3 to 14 (section 15.3). First, we will summarise each of these projects by presenting a brief description of the five consecutive steps for each project (section 15.3.1). Second, we will discuss the methodological quality of the eleven cases (section 15.3.2). Third, we will compare our cases in more detail, in a step by step comparison in terms of: preparation, problem analysis, choice of measures, implementation and evaluation (section 15.4). Finally, we will draw several conclusions and formulate some recommendations (section 15.5).
