Qld fit note in development

A new work capacity certificate is being developed in Queensland in response to stakeholder consultation.

The new certificate will focus on what work can be done after injury, supporting early and safe rehabilitation and return to work, and encouraging return-to-work discussions as early as possible.

The Office of Industrial Relations has almost completed its consultation with stakeholder focus groups and peak representative associations and consideration of survey responses and written submissions about the fit note.

The new certificate is expected to start being available in July, with full implementation by January 2017.

β€œTo ensure the success of this transition, a website dedicated to doctors will be developed to support their education needs,” according to a Queensland Government media release.
