Injury Management Coordinators Course

 
Event date:
20/4/2009 - 22/4/2009

Event title:
Injury Management Coordinators Course

Event location:

57 Division Street, Welshpool

Event time: 08:30AM - 05:00PM

Event description:

Injury Management Coordinators’ course by Carepoint provides successful completion of the assessment components will provide fulfillment of the following two National Units of Competency:

  • FNSWCMP401A: Plan and implement rehabilitation and return to work strategies
  • BSBHR509A: Manage rehabilitation/return to work programmes

A successful participant will receive a Statement of Attainment evidencing competency in these two units and will be entitled to use them towards partial completion of the eight units required to achieve a Diploma of OH&S (BSB51604).

This three day program will provide competent students with the knowledge and skills required to coordinate a successful return to work program. It delivers an in depth understanding of why the workplace is the best place to carry out a rehabilitation program for return to work. Each student will gain a good understanding of the influence of the, workers compensation insurance parameters and the process required to ensure visible and measurable outcomes are established, monitored and reported in line with legislative requirements.

The program outlines clearly the role the injury management coordinator plays in keeping all parties involved in order to identify, provide and/or coordinate the services necessary for successful rehabilitation. Understanding the role the different parties play and the importance of communication is pivotal and is consistently promoted throughout the program. The Workers Compensation Act, Regulations and Code of Practice for Injury management and how they interact with the rehabilitation process on a day to day basis are clearly defined initially and throughout the course.

All of this information will be underscored by the human factors that make or break a successful return to work program along with a good understanding of the healing qualities that the act of working at a meaningful task offers.

Injury management in the workplace is a matter of good practice and social justice that makes good business sense.

Audience:
This course is designed for those personnel responsible for the implementation and coordination of Injury Management in the workplace including those responsible for creating return to work programs for injured workers
