Rehabilitation Case Manager Forum: How to support recovery and return to work through workplace accommodations and empowering employees


About the forum

The next Rehabilitation Case Manager forum will be on Thursday 28 October, 2021 at 2.00pm. The forum will cover supporting recovery and returning to work through workplace accommodations and employee empowerment.

This forum will feature two guest presenters:

  • Amber Tratter is a Senior Relationship Manager at the Australian Network on Disability who works with Australian businesses to build the capacity of their employees to confidently welcome employees with disability into all aspects of business. Amber is a professional facilitator and trains teams to ensure they are getting it right and leads projects across Australia to empower people with disability.
  • Morgan Tear is a Research Fellow at BehaviourWorks Australia. Morgan’s research lies at the intersection of social, cultural, and organisational psychologies. He was a researcher on the Employee awareness project; a joint 2019 project with Comcare that investigated how to better empower people with a temporary or permanent injury, illness or disability to use work as part of their recovery.

Comcare will also provide an update on current return to work initiatives.
