Injury Management

Injury Management

Contemporary psychological injury management is not just about treating a worker who may have sustained a psychological injury in the workplace. Modern psychological rehabilitation services use a bio-psychosocial framework to assist workers with a variety of injuries (including physical) to return to work more quickly.

Research has repeatedly shown that “managing the risks” (Red, yellow, blue and black flags) is crucial for a successful return to work. Therefore adjustment to injury counselling is as an important part of intervention as medical assessment and treatment.
Injury response services include:
  • Clinical assessment
  • Adjustment to injury counselling
  • Treatment (Inc. onsite desensitisation where necessary)
  • Pain management

NDIS - Disability Services :: Positive Behaviour Support Plans

People who have complex support needs and/or mental health diagnoses can also exhibit challenging behaviours which can cause harm to themselves and/or others. These behaviours of concern more often also create distress and upheaval in home, workplace and community environments. At Renew, we implement a 5 stage model that is person-centred and collaborative in approach. These are:
  • Data gathering and assessment
  • Hypothesis formulation and testing
  • Plan development
  • Training and implementation
  • Review and ongoing follow-up
As we are outcome focused, we work with people in their homes, workplaces and community settings in which the behaviours of concern occur. At Renew, we believe that for a positive behaviour support plan to be successfully implemented, particularly with people with complex needs, requires the time and commitment that is outlined in our comprehensive stages of development.
