Abstract

This study documents the findings of a qualitative investigation of the structure, process, and outcomes of an Intensive Case Management (ICM) program that was implemented in several government departments to improve the management of psychological injury and to reduce costs. The study demonstrated that the ICM model was effective in meeting its intended outcomes. Specifically, the model facilitated the delivery of timely and coordinated services to the workplace, and consequently, reduced the incidence of claim lodgment, assisted with accommodated return to work and minimised time away from work. Issues for future consideration included how the model could be integrated more firmly into the organisational culture and how to incorporate systematic follow-up and the capacity to address longer-term issues for injured workers.
