Information about innovation at Comcare and the Asbestos Innovation Fund.

Comcare is committed to helping strengthen expertise in the prevention and better management of asbestos exposure, to improving the treatment and support available for asbestos-disease sufferers and improving the management of the Commonwealth's common law asbestos responsibilities. We are doing this in a number of different ways including supporting a Flinders Medical Centre research initiative, and underwriting and administering the Asbestos Innovation Fund (Asbestos Fund).

A key focus of the Strategic Plan 2010-2015 (2015 Plan) is innovation. Innovation is an important part of engaging with the community and capturing the ideas of our colleagues and community to ensure that Comcare responds to the challenges of increasingly complex issues.
