Predictors of non-return to work 2 years post-injury in road traffic crash survivors: Results from the UQ SuPPORT study

A recent research report from the University of Queensland has looked into the predictors of non-RTW for individuals who have sustained an injury from a road traffic crash (RTC).  Determining the predictors of non-RTW is necessary to develop screening tools to identify at-risk individuals and to provide early targeted intervention for successful return to work (RTW).

The aim of this study was to identify factors that can predict which individuals will not RTW following minor or moderate injuries sustained from a RTC. The results are promising, because they suggest that having information about two factors, which are easily obtainable, can predict with accuracy those who will require additional support to facilitate RTW.
