- The Managed Rehabilitation Program has
just recently published its 4th Annual Report.
This document demonstrates how the Program continues to prevent
significant costs through interventions such as stay-at-work initiatives, or
graduated return to work programs. The
types of claims continue to be consistent with previous years: 45% due to musculoskeletal problems (such as
back, neck and wrist injuries); 30% are psychological in nature; and 25% are
due to various medical conditions (cardiovascular, cancer). Copies of the Report can be obtained by
calling Marjorie Ingerman, MRP Office, at 966-4580 (e-mail: email@example.com). The document will also be placed on HRD’s
web site by the end of October, 2001.
