Joining industry leaders at the Injury and Disability Schemes Seminar (News)

11 November 2019

Natalie Bekis, our GM Strategic Partnerships and Engagement will present at the Actuaries Institute of Australia’s Injury & Disability Schemes Seminar.

The theme for 2019 is Insights and Outcomes.

Comcare will share an update on Scheme performance and dedicate a session to the success and future expansion of Beyond Blue’s NewAccess program – a mental health coaching service that achieved a 78% recovery rate as part of a trial with two APS agencies.

Ms Bekis will discuss the NewAccess mental health coaching service, including key insights from the evaluation conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers that found psychological therapies can be delivered successfully by non-clinical coaches to help manage mental health in the workplace.

The 2019 Injury and Disability Schemes Seminar is held over two days in Canberra with representatives from across Australasia, including actuaries, scheme administrators, regulators, researchers, injury and disability specialists and service providers.

The theme Insights and Outcomes is reflective of using data, knowledge and participant insights to drive change and improve outcomes for individuals and effectiveness of the system.

You can find out more about the event via the Seminar website.
