To guide our research efforts and priorities, and the partnerships we lead and join, we have developed a plan titled Research Plan towards 2022.
Developing a Research Plan
Australia’s workplaces are changing. We need applied research that helps us address new and emerging challenges to workplaces and the health and wellbeing of workers.
It has never been more important to forge powerful partnerships with other compensation and safety schemes, academia, as well as public and private industries to invest and trial research in real life settings. This research informs and improves future policy and practice.
In developing Comcare’s Research Plan towards 2022, we carried out an extensive stakeholder engagement and consultation process to help us better understand and respond to research needs now and in the future.

After consulting extensively across our own business and the jurisdiction, we identified five research themes to drive new and better ways of keeping our workplaces and employees safe and healthy.

- Enabling healthy and safe workplaces
- Enhancing employer capability
- Guiding and supporting mental health and wellbeing
- Fostering work participation and recovery
- Adapting to the future of work.
These research themes enable us to prioritise potential research opportunities to ensure we address the high-level needs of the jurisdiction.
