National workshop series from the Collaborative Partnership to improve work participation (News)
16 March 2021
Discussing the implementation phase of Australia’s first set of principles for General Practitioners (GPs) in supporting work participation is the focus of a new workshop series hosted by the Collaborative Partnership.
Led by Comcare and the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (AFOEM), the series brings together a diverse mix of interested stakeholders, including GPs and peak professional health bodies, employers, industry, insurers, schemes and systems, people with lived experience, and the ACTU.
Participants will share perspectives on how sectors and systems can work together with GPs in helping people with a health condition or disability engage in good work. A key focus will be how the GP Principles can be applied across clinical practice, workplaces and compensation and other income support systems to support improved collaboration and system design.
The Principles on the role of the GP in supporting work participation has been officially recognised as a Supported Position Statement by The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. Led by the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, the Project is a key initiative of the Collaborative Partnership to improve work participation.
