Injured and ill nurses return to work in hospitals project

The Nurses Return to Work in Hospitals Project is the first comprehensive investigation into the process of what happens to injured and ill nurses who try to return to work in hospitals and has already received interest from nursing organisations and employers across Australia and internationally.

Victorian nurses suffered over 8000 compensated work injuries between 2000-2006. Of which, there were over 1000 compensated work injuries to nurses in 2006.

The resources launched in November 2009 are the result of the three-year project, funded by the WorkSafe Victoria's RTW Fund, to identify barriers to and factors for the successful return to work of nurses and midwives who are injured or ill through work in hospitals. The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (Victoria Branch) was joined in the project by:

  • Victorian Hospitals' Industrial Association, representing employers in public health facilities
  • Injured Nurses Support Group, representing injured and ill nurses
  • Dr Helen Sutcliffe, providing additional experience of injured and ill nurses. 

All of the resources developed as a result of this project are available at www.nursesRTW.com.au
