Return to Work Planning
A return to work plan is developed to assist the worker at work, specifically providing details of the primary and secondary goals for the client’s recovery. It outlines any medical restrictions, duties, hours and consideration of any special requirements.
The process of developing a return to work plan generally requires that a workplace assessment be conducted, collaboration occurs with medical and treatment providers so that all restrictions are considered to ensure that the activities performed are safe and sustainable.
Medical Case Conferences
As a rehabilitation consultant, our role is to ensure that the gradual return to work program remains adherent to the limitations specified by the client’s general practitioner.
Treatment Case Conferences
As with medical case conferences, treatment case conferences are an imperative component of the gradual return to work program. They are targeted to ensure that the treating parties are aware of the physical demands of the pre-injury role, to develop and maintain a goal oriented program which best supports that rehabilitation goals.
