Abstract: Musculoskeletal disorders are common and costly disorders to workers compensation and motor accident insurance systems and are a leading contributor to the burden of ill-health. In Australia, vocational rehabilitation is provided to workers to assist them to stay in or return to work. Self-management training may be an innovative addition to improve health and employment outcomes from vocational rehabilitation.
