The Psychological Injury Claims & Return-to-Work conference is a comprehensive program covering how to substantiate a psychological injury claim, process it and address it in a way that is compassionate towards the employee involved.
As featured on the 7.30 report, take passionate insight from the Technical instructor of Fire & Rescue NSW on how he approaches mental health providers after his first-hand experience dealing with mental health support services.
Take guidance from SafeWork Australia and SafeWork NSW on how best to approach reintroducing injured workers through frameworks that are accessible and that promote mental wellness.
Gain clinical insight on how employers should respond to psychological injury from Dr Peter Cotton’s well-researched psychological support programs that have supported the Police and Emergency Services organisations, health and human services agencies and not-for-profits amongst many more.
Develop a comprehensive return-to-work strategy, modelled after Darwalla Group’s award-winning rehabilitation & return-to-work management system, ranked no. 1 by Worksafe Queensland in the 2017 WorkSafe awards.
This pre-conference workshop is a one-day deep-dive into the management of mental health and psychological injury cases in the workplace. This workshop will cover all the most pressing challenges that mental health-related cases bring forth, even for the most capable injury management experts.
Leading the workshop is the exceptional Samantha Breust from Konekt. Samantha is a pioneer in injury case management. Samantha is a highly experienced, award-winning injury management professional with a proven track-record for achieving outstanding return to work outcomes, whilst providing mentorship and organisational direction to allied health professionals and support staff in the injury management and preventative workplace health industries.
The workshop tracks the process of injury management from start to finish, with case studies, injury statistics and framework templates interspersed throughout. Learn how to identify the early-warning signs, develop lines of communication with the employee and medical experts, deal with cases of extended absence, ensure a healthy return-to-work standard is maintained and consider all avenues for the future direction of the claimant.
