Assessing return to work policy and practice (ComPARE) - Research project
The COMpensation Policy And Return to work Effectiveness (ComPARE) project aims to develop evidence that can help improve return to work policy and practice in Australia.
The project has produced a number of findings, including major research reports, presentations and journal articles.
See the latest ComPARE Project reports.
The ComPARE project was established at Monash University in 2014 to develop an evidence base that can help develop and implement effective return to work policy in Australia.
The project adopts a comparative effectiveness methodology, comparing return to work outcomes between settings and cohorts, and before-and-after changes in policy or practice.
The project aims to identify policies and practices that have positive or negative effects on return to work. The project is funded from WorkSafe Victoria through the Institute for Safety Compensation and Recovery Research, as well as Safe Work Australia.
In-kind support is received from the national organisations outlined below, as well as data from the National Data Set from each state and territory.
