About

The Centre of Research Excellence in Better Health Outcomes for Compensable Injury (CRE-Compensable Injury), funded by a $2.5 million NHMRC grant, will address the urgent need to improve health outcomes for individuals with non-catastrophic road traffic injury (RTI) through translational research, capacity building and end-user engagement focused on health, compensation and legal systems.

CRE-Compensable Injury has undertaken extensive engagement with our partners, including, consumer advocates, QLD, NSW, VIC and SA State Government Insurance Regulators, CTP Insurers’ Rehabilitation Managers, worker’s compensation bodies, legal experts and representatives from peak professional bodies. Three key priority areas set our research, implementation and training agenda:

  1. Data to drive system change
  2. Implementing best practice models of care; and
  3. Reducing the impact of system factors on injured people.
