Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation - REHB5924

Year - 2020

This unit examines workplace disability, rehabilitation, and worker's compensation system. The major health conditions responsible for work disability are identified and profiled from psychological, social, economic, and medical perspectives. Profiles of work disability are used to illustrate how the system works and the stakeholder roles within. Each aspect of work rehabilitation is considered from the stakeholder standpoint. Recovery-at-work and Return-to-work are the contexts for exploring good and evidence based practice; finding the rehabilitation counsellor role, and reflecting on ethical considerations in service of multiple client stakeholders.
