Through the utilisation of an objective and clinical assessment, our experienced occupational rehabilitation consultants will liaise with all involved parties such as the employer, general practitioner and injured party to:
*Establish a rehabilitation and return to work goal by evaluating worker’s needs.
*Determine appropriate actions and services which are timely and evidence based.
*Provide feedback in regard to their injury and associated dysfunction, both in and out of the workplace, with clear strategies and goals documented.
*Provide further treatment or assessment recommendations to assist the injured worker to improve their functional ability and work related capacity.
Depending on the need of the referrer, Initial Needs Assessment can be carried out in one of two formats:
Rainbow Legal’s phone-based occupational rehabilitation consultants conduct a comprehensive assessment and report, which is cost and time effective while being focused on a realistic return to work and/or recovery outcome.
Focusing on more severe injuries or cases which experience significant barriers to recovery and return to work, Rainbow Legal field occupational rehabilitation
consultants provide face-to-face initial needs assessment with the injured party. A report and rehabilitation plan, outlining the recommended rehabilitation programme and estimated costs is then prepared.
Reduced costs of sickness absence, insurance and litigation. Identification of complex needs and support criteria for rehabilitation and return to work.
Identification of anticipated duration and cost of an injury in terms of rehabilitation management.
Reduced likelihood of the individual requiring lengthy sick leave.
Guaranteed client centred recovery and return to work goal.
