  The issues

  1. Being way from work for long periods is a significant health risk. 
  2. People with compensation claims have worse health outcomes than those who have the same condition without compensation.  
Both require action to change. This website provides information and resources to help improve outcomes.

The information on this site is designed for employees and their families, RTW coordinators and managers, supervisors, human resource staff, senior managers, claims and injury managers, treating practitioners including doctors and physiotherapists, unions, rehabilitation professionals and policy makers.
