In mid-2010 the WorkCover Board initiated an independent review to assess the use of vocational rehabilitation services in the WorkCover Scheme. In addition, the Board agreed a new Strategic Direction 2011-16 which has a clear focus on delivering the best outcomes for injured workers, employers and the South Australian community. The increasing use of vocational rehabilitation services and no significant improvement in return to work outcomes for injured workers had been of concern to the Board. Consequently, John Walsh, workers compensation expert, was commissioned to assess the outcomes achieved by the use of vocational rehabilitation services in the current case management context. This report highlighted a number of issues that were contributing to poor return to work outcomes. It also outlined a range of key interventions that could improve the experience and outcomes for individuals and overall Scheme performance.
