Early Intervention

The use of early intervention strategies following workplace injuries and illnesses have long been espoused to be important in ensuring a fast recovery and shortening the length of time away from work.

Comcare commissioned a project to investigate the use and benefits of early intervention within the scheme.  The aim of this Early Intervention Project was to determine:

  • Who uses early intervention, why they use it and what role it plays
  • What effective early intervention looks like from the employer's perspective
  • Why employers do or do not invest in Early Intervention.

The information contained in the report amalgamates the findings from an exploratory data analysis, qualitative research undertaken by Sweeney Research on behalf of Comcare, and an online survey conducted by the Comcare Research Team with employer representatives within the Comcare jurisdiction.
