Aims of the Project
SIU staff positively engage with the B2W program and actively refer clients to the program with the following project goals:
- Increase in RTW rate compared to baseline data
- Earlier RTW, within 12 months of discharge
- Employers and community partners have increased confidence in supporting people with SCI returning to employment
- Produce evidence to inform the development of B2W and other early intervention vocational programs
Back2Work is a three-year pilot project delivered by Spinal Life Australia, in conjunction with an active research program through Griffith University. Research participation is voluntary.
The Back2Work project is proudly supported by the Motor Accident Insurance Commission, in partnership with Griffith University and Metro South Hospital and Health Services.
