“This multi-jurisdictional, two-year study focused on health-care providers’ experiences within the workers’ compensation system and their role in the RTW process. Through document analysis and interviews with both health-care professionals and workers’ compensation case managers, the study sought to answer three broad questions:

  • What is the role of health-care providers in the workers’ compensation system and in the RTW process?
  • What challenges do health-care professionals face?
  • What can help engage health-care professionals in the workers’ compensation and RTW process?”
