Managing the complexities of psychological injury case management & return to work

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.  

Key objectives: 

  • Assessing and managing workplace psychological injury claims
  • Ensuring effective reporting, documentation and compliance with psychological injury cases
  • Implementing effective return-to-work & rehabilitation strategies

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 from Suicide Risk Assessment Australia, covering data relating to working with injured workers experiencing suicidality and barriers these workers face in the return to work process.

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.
