Group work is starting to slowly take off again

This is our Injury on Duty group, where we manage the patient’s expectations for compensation and we address psychosocial barriers to return to work.

The take home message of this group is:

‘I am not going to be a millionaire because I got injured at work.’
‘The rumours were not true – it is not a jackpot.’
‘I will ALWAYS be better off by going back to work.’

It is a long process and there are many stakeholders involved when patients are injured on duty. This group answers questions such as:

“Is my employer meant to cover my transport when I go to the therapist or doctor?
Why am I not receiving my salary after 3 months?
What is the role of the Department of Labour?”

Knowledge is power.
