This website has been set up to provide  information to our 3 key targets, small to medium size business, injured workers and treatment providers. We aim to support health professionals by providing relevant information and by also lobbying for increased incentives for allied health professionals. 


We will be providing information that is pitched at a level for each of our target audiences.  For example the information a treating doctor or specialist needs to understand and consider in their management will be quite different from that of the small business owner who is attempting to provide suitable duties to his employees.


Initially most of the information provided will be generic -  in that it will address the broader issues of treatment and injury management relevant to working within  workers compensation systems - things such as time lines -  what happens and when, barriers to rehabilitation and treatment effectiveness . Over time, as the site develops we will be publishing more discipline specific  information  that may include a journal article, a relevant research breakthrough, or an article about a legislative or legal challenge that has relevance to (a) specifc discipline/s.
