The 5th Australasian Compensation Health Research Forum (ACHRF) was hosted by the Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) and New Zealand’s Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC).
This forum followed several successful events which feature presentations from local and international practitioners, decision-makers and researchers, providing attendees the opportunity to connect with like-minded compensation regulators, policy makers, researchers and healthcare providers over two days.
This year’s theme Innovation in a Complex Compensation System looked at both individual and system level complexities to provide discussion, debate and interaction within plenary and sub-stream environments.
ACHRF is pleased to confirm some more great speakers on the program, including:
— Steve Tighe, our guest speaker on day 2 of the program, who will discuss ‘The Future of Health’.
— Nas Campanella, triple J newsreader, who will be the featured speaker at the Welcome Dinner.
