Training Material

The Rehabilitation Model of Care (RehabMoC) encourages employers to:

  • Provide training and information on workers compensation and rehabilitation for managers and supervisors in order to establish and foster a supportive workplace for injured and/or ill nurses.
  • Educate all nurses of the consequence of injury and/or illness as part of induction, with refresher training biennially.

To support this, training material for NUMS/ANUMS and Nurses in rehabilitation and return to work has been developed.

The RehabMoC also encourages employers to promote the appointment of and/or provide training for RTW Coordinators incorporating the following competencies:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of Legislation, including detailed understanding of practical application of workers compensation, rehabilitation and RTW.
  • Conflict Resolution Skills – effective management and negotiation skills, to influence assertively in the workplace.
  • Counselling skills – particularly understanding importance of empathy.
  • Knowledge and understanding of injuries and the impact of injuries.

To support this, training material for RTW Coordinators, which is an extension of the current training provided to RTW Coordinators through WorkSafe Victoria’s 2 day training, has been developed.

The training material is made available through contact with the ANF (VB), on (03) 9275 9333.
