Insights on early intervention to improve return to work outcomes

As an initiative under the National Return to Work Strategy, Safe Work Australia engaged Monash University to undertake independent research to explore best practice early intervention and claims management models.

The research included expert consultation with a diverse range of stakeholders in the workers’ compensation and return to work fields and an environmental scan and summary of national and international literature. The researchers identified a range of barriers and enablers to effective early intervention after claim lodgement.
