New free online service improves return to work

< 1 min read

Launched in early March, The Return To Work Knowledge Base was developed with the support and assistance of workers, employers, insurers and medical practitioners. The Knowledge Base was designed to establish evidence based interventions and advocate cultural development that has practical benefits.

“The Knowledge Base contains over 100 articles covering medical factors, the consequences of being out of work, workplace management models, attitudinal factors and return to work approaches,” Project Manager Robert Hughes said.

Annually, workplace injury and illness costs Australians more than $20 billion in lost productivity and medical expenses. The approach to treatment, the response of the employer, decisions made in the workplace and the beliefs and attitudes of the people involved are some of the most important influences on recovery and return to work.
