About this Course

Supporting GPs in completing work capacity certificates.

General Practitioners have asked for ACC's support in prescribing better medical certification. Accordingly, this short course is for clinicians who regularly complete work capacity certificates.

Research indicates a successful recovery at, or return to work relies on a team-based model of care, with input from a range of disciplines. ACC provides a range of support to enable your patient to access the right care at the right time as they progress through: 

  • acute injury, 
  • treatment, 
  • recovery, 
  • return to independence, 
  • as well as supporting you to fully assess and plan their recovery.

This topic is intended to encourage further reflection, study, and learning. It aims to provide you with the skills and confidence to provide safe work capacity certification through a model of care that is grounded by evidence.
