Specialised Early Intervention Service (SEIS)

We aim to facilitate work capacity and lower the risk of chronicity via :

  • Identifying complex worker injuries with poor prognostic indicators within the first 2 to 4 weeks of injury.
  • Provide early and accurate diagnosis.
  • Recommend or implement appropriate treatment.

Specialist Medical Services

Occupational & Environmental Physicians are highly trained medical specialists who are experts in the field of work on health (‘causation’) and health on work (‘capacity for work’). They focus on identification, prevention, management and treatment of health conditions within the workplace, and medical issues within the wider context of their psycho-social, industrial and motivational frameworks. Additionally, they have intimate knowledge of various worksites, work practices, work exposures and organisational structures within various industries.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.

Pain Management

Maria Polymeneas has co-run the Paragon Pain Program with Peter Roberts and the physiotherapists at Roberts Physiotherapy since 2000. Patients with chronic pain (3-6+ months post injury) can benefit from attendance at this program to restore function. A shorter program has also been developed to prevent the development of chronic pain and is available to patients within the first 4-6 weeks of injury when it is obvious the return to work and recovery will be delayed.

Worksite Assessment

A worksite assessment is a valuable intervention to assist in achieving the RTW outcome.

The goal of a worksite assessment is to gain an overview of the demands of the worker’s pre injury duties and the availability of other suitable duties.

At the worksite the physical environment, the physical demands of the pre injury duties and possible available duties, mental demands of the work, working conditions and the psychosocial issues at the workplace are assessed.

Wellness and Employee Assistance Programs

At SEIS we believe that healthy workplaces don’t just happen they are created.

When these environments are created workers are able to achieve the demands of their work in a safe and supportive context. At SEIS physical, social and psychological health can be promoted through wellness programs. These programs promote physical, psychological and social health, while preventing injury and disability by considering both the worker and the workplace.
