Prevention is better than cure. A cliché perhaps but it is certainly true.
Also true is that when an injury does occur, the healing process can be complex.
This conference will provide innovative and interesting ideas and methods to advance the prevention of, and the recovery from workplace injuries in Victoria.
The Self Insurers Association of Victoria is pleased to offer this conference to members and others in the belief that both prevention and injury management practitioners will benefit from their attendance.
