Inching towards earlier intervention

This webinar will briefly discuss a number of persistent pain focussed interventions that WorkSafe Victoria have engaged with and have undergone formal evaluation. While none could reasonably be said to be early interventions, the evaluations have revealed more reasons and some very acceptable methods for inching towards earlier interventions. The following will be discussed:

  • Persistent Pain Project ECHO - a telementoring program for primary health care clinicians (in conjunction with Western Victoria PHN and the TAC).
  • Evaluation of 6 years of data collected for Victorian compensable clients who have participated in Pain Management Programs.
  • A program of additional support offered to workers whose decisions on surgery were delayed during the Covid 19 lockdowns.
