On July 14, ISCRR’s Research Communications and Translation Manager, Dr Jimmy Twin, presented on the “Barriers to Return to Work after Injury – a 10 Year Review of ISCRR Research” at the Personal Injury Education Foundation (PIEF) virtual conference.

A scan of ISCRR research relating to returning to work after work-related injury or illness was conducted. A total of 35 studies that were commissioned by WorkSafe Victoria were identified from the period between 2009-2018 and their main findings were synthesised from the perspective of injured workers. Through consultation with WorkSafe, 135 barriers were identified and categorised under six broad groups. Dr Twin discussed each of these in detail within his presentation.

ISCRR is grateful to have the opportunity to share our knowledge in this area with the broader research and industrial communities.
