About the forums

Our forums aim to improve RCM capability. They promote better practice rehabilitation and support employees to recover and return to work. The forums are held three times a year and are well represented by Case Managers from both Commonwealth Agencies and Licensees.

Guest rehabilitation and return to work experts present practical content to help promote and enable safe and healthy work across Comcare’s scheme.
