Personal Injury Compensation schemes for workplace and road injuries/trauma have been around for more than 75 years. Yet the question of “what is best/better practice in case/claims management” continues to be asked, including defining the role of personal injury compensation schemes as part of Australia’s social protection ecosystem.
This webinar will explore the evolution outcomes sought in personal injury compensation schemes, and current and future focus areas. The implications for case/claims management will be discussed, in the context of the rapidly changing environment impacting the future of work, and the types of injuries and diseases. A summary of recent research aimed at verifying the efficacy of interventions to improve return to work outcomes (and participation generally) for both physical and mental injury will also be discussed.
Although no ‘one size fits all - silver bullet’ solution is to be presented, the webinar aims to stimulate reflective thought and discussion to provide insight on interdisciplinary care approaches to support people with injury and disability to get their lives back on track.
