Validation of a screening to assess the need of rehabilitation and prevention

German federal law ("Flexirentengesetz" and "Bundesteilhabegesetz") determines that the "introduction of a voluntary, individual, job-related health care" for insured persons over the age of 45 years will be tested in so called model projects.
Until now, there is a lack of validated tools for determining biopsychosocial impairments including work capacity.
The research project therefore aims to validate a previously developed screening instrument („Ü45-Screening“). For this purpose, data from a postal survey of insured persons of the German Statutory Pension Insurance Scheme is linked with routine data of the study participants.
