Come along and help us answer this question at ISCRR's next FREE Research Forum.

There is now substantial published Australian and international evidence that compensation processes are associated with stress, poor physical and mental health, slow return to work and increased costs of compensation. Recent studies have identified specific aspects of injury compensation policy and practice that may contribute to these outcomes. There are also now attempts to alter policy and practice to improve outcomes.

This forum will explore the evidence base in depth, and will engage the research, policy and practitioner community in discussion of potential solutions to this complex problem.

The format will be two session, with one in the morning looking at the 'Impact of compensation on the injured person' and the 'Impact of compensation on others' followed by a panel discussion; with the second looking at 'Mechanisms' and 'Potential Solutions' which will also be followed by a panel session.

Presenters will include:

  • Professor Ian Harris, University of New South Wales
  • Professor Belinda Gabbe, Monash University
  • Dr Melita Giummarra, Monash University
  • Professor Luke Connelly, University of Queensland
  • Professor Danielle Mazza, Monash University
