I recently, and again, took a little break from blogging that was not planned. I specify not planned because I had more blog posts planned than could be published. Although my (and your) body without you realising or wanting to pay attention to it, really does need breaks, this time mine came in the form of nasty dislocation of my total reverse shoulder prosthetic which obviously affects the one thing bloggers and pretty much everyone needs, your hands and arms!
Empowering injured workers | Exposing the workcover conspiracy

It has just come to my attention that a Victorian Injured worker was asked to undergo an independent medical examination in Melbourne CBD, BUT with an independent medical examiner that was flown in from QLD! The best medical specialists are in Melbourne, so why the need to fly one in?
We recently recieved the following testimonial / story from a Victorian Injured Worker, via our Contact form. Not only has this injured worker come to the realisation that being on workcover is, indeed, a nightmare; but s/he also praises aworkcovervictimsdiary.com which helped her/him understand that s/he is definitely not alone.
Further to R’s recent comment, here is a little more information about pre-existing injuries/illnesses and job interviews. Unfortunately, many injured workers know how hard it can be to find a new job after having suffered a workplace injury/illness. It actually feels like we are labelled with a sticker on our foreheads stating “contagious” or something like that! Really! A prospective employer can seek information during an interview provided the questions are relevant to the ability of the job applicant to perform the inherent requirements of the job.
