What You Will Learn
Injuries in the workplace can be costly and time-consuming. The Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator is an important part in minimising the effect on injured workers and employers and you need to learn from Trainers currently delivering workplace rehabilitation services.
This training includes basic understanding and applying relevant legislation and procedures to ensure compliance in workers’ compensation applications and injury management processes. The course provides an understanding of the worker’s compensation system in Queensland and focuses on early return to work and injury management principles, effective collaboration with rehabilitation providers, development of suitable duties programs, effective workplace communication and negotiation skills, problem-solving in workplace rehabilitation, case and system review techniques and continuous improvement.
Both theoretical and practical scenarios are discussed in the course, building the prospective Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinators’ confidence in the process of managing claims, communicating effectively with relevant stakeholders, identifying suitable duties in the workplace, and effectively assisting the injured worker’s rehabilitation needs and graduated return to work.
