This study explored the effect of an RN case management intervention on injured workers with musculoskeletal injuries. A two group randomized posttest controlled design was used. The hypothesis stated that injured workers, ages 20 to 65 years old, with work-related musculoskeletal injuries who were randomized to receive a six-week telephonic RN case management intervention would report higher functional health as measured by the SF-36 Health Survey and would have fewer lost days from work compared to injured workers randomized to the control group who receive treatment as usual. A sample of 23 injured workers who were participating in physical therapy was recruited over an eight-month period. The SF-36 Health Survey assessed the injured workers’ health perceptions at the end of a six-week enrollment in the study. The results of the ANOVA for the SF-36 Health Survey subscales indicated that there were no significant differences between the intervention group and the control group.
