Join us for a webinar on 30th November 2021 at 3pm AEDT 

RTW Matters Webinar: Two highly experienced and effective case managers share their experience of what works.

Improvements to case management can increase support for workers while also reducing costs. A proactive, early intervention case management approach implemented and studied in Australia reduced days lost from work by 60% and lowered claim costs by 40%.  In this webinar, Dr Wyatt interviews two of the case managers involved in this extremely effective intervention. Each has considerable experience in the successful case management model, which is based on a supportive approach, maintaining positive workplace relations and avoiding disputes and delays. Engagement of the employee and the line manager is paramount.

In this webinar we explore:

  • The importance of the first conversation and the first 24 hours
  • Engaging the employer
  • Supporting the worker (and preventing demotivation)
  • Streamlining communication with the GP and healthcare providers

OccCorp, which led the cost-saving intervention, is an Injury Management consultancy that is focussed on early intervention and an evidence based approach to injury management. It has been in operation since 2001.
