OUR GOALS

  1. Reduce amount of time off work waiting for scans and appointments by weeks or months
  2. Identify workers who can safely return to work early
  3. Identify early workers who require specific treatment (physiotherapy, nerve blocks, OT review etc)
  4. Identify barriers for return to work: physical, motivational, conflict, workplace environment
  5. Involve all stakeholders early, and ensure that management of the worker is highly co-ordinated. We aim to work closely with general practitioners, rehabilitation providers, case managers, and allied health practitioners to offer patients the best possible care in the shortest timeframe.
