Research and evidence

Comcare's approach for applied research projects until 2022 helps address new and emerging challenges facing workplaces.

We are expanding the NewAccess trial after a six-month pilot trial within two Australian Public Service (APS) agencies showed it is an appropriate service for workplace settings.

The project aims to reduce clinical uncertainties and foster high-quality general practitioner behaviour towards patients with work-related mental health conditions.

This research looks at developing skills and knowledge to assess and understand risks of physical and psychosocial hazards in the modern workplace.

An examination of ways to support employers to implement new and better models and practices, with an aim of enabling safe and healthy work.

Looking at how to build and maintain mentally healthy workplaces and reduce the risk of mental ill health at work.

How we can help people recover from injury and illness, enable return to work and improve work participation.

As workplaces face new and emerging concerns, our research aims to address some of the challenges that lie ahead.

Alerts provide a summary of the latest evidence-based research on the health benefits of work, recovery at, return to work and work health and safety issues.
