Return to work
GPs play a key role in assisting patients return to work after injury and illness. Return to work where managed appropriately can be beneficial to a person’s physical and mental health and recovery.
When collaborating with the patient to develop their individualised management plan (including return to work), consider the demands of their job and any special requirements of their work (for example, the need to wear certain PPE, perform shift work, fly-in-fly-out) and whether modified duties or reduced hours may facilitate an appropriate return to work.
Principles on the role of the GP in supporting work participation have been developed by the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and are supported by the RACGP. The Principles provide clarity around roles and expectations of all stakeholders involved in supporting work engagement, recovery at and return to good work.
