Early intervention in the workers’ compensation process

Safe Work Australia has published an independent research report by Monash University Early intervention in the workers’ compensation process.

The report examines the evidence of different approaches to early intervention in workers’ compensation in Australia. It also examines what works to reduce recovery times and improve return to work outcomes for injured workers.

The independent research included expert consultation with a diverse range of stakeholders in the workers’ compensation and return to work fields, an environmental scan and summary of national and international literature.

This report will inform further work under the National Return to Work Strategy 2020–2030.
