Rehabilitation CME: Return to Work Following Illness or Injury

5th Mar 2020 at East Pier Hotel

Every day that someone is off work following an injury is another day that their body and brain will lose their conditioning for work. The benefits of taking a ‘rehabilitation on the job’ approach by far exceed rehabilitation undertaken outside of the workplace.
Research consistently shows that recovering at work early is the best way to ensure that your rehabilitation is physically, psychologically and socially complete, especially when combined with other complementary rehabilitation such as physical exercise. 


Join us as we explore the following:

  • Principles of Vocational rehabilitation
  • Barriers to Return to Work - What the research says
  • A practice based evidence approach: Analysis of the reasons that clients don't return to work
  • Analysis of risk factors - Using practice based evidence to flag reduced likelihood to Return to Work
  • Working together - Engaging with VRS Providers to achieve the best outcomes for clients
