The Office of Industrial Relations (OIR) is responsible for updating Queensland doctors on the workers’ compensation scheme. They have renewed the resources available to support medical practitioners within the scheme.
The medical support dedicated website for medical practitioners has contemporary best practice tools and resources available. This website, worksafe.qld.gov.au/medicalsupport, provides:
- short and concise information
- webcasts on key topics such as managing patients with hand injuries or psychological injuries
- continuing professional development (CPD) accredited learning and how to utilise the new Work Capacity Certificate – workers’ compensation to achieve improved rehabilitation outcomes for patients.
Share these free resources with your practitioners to help improve patient outcomes following work related injuries.
