The Regional Network Program is a new initiative aimed at developing networks and educational opportunities for the many people who interact with the workers' compensation scheme across Queensland, including rehabilitation coordinators, health providers, employers and injured workers.
The program was developed in response to feedback received during a regional roadshow in early 2011, that the return to work community in regional Queensland required more support through a stronger Q-COMP presence in the area.
As part of their role, the ambassadors will help ensure that locals will be able to access information and ask questions of an individual who, not only understands Q-COMP and the workers' compensation scheme, but also has first hand experience in the region.
The first ambassadors are well placed to perform these duties, being experienced allied health professionals who specialise in return to work services.
Q-COMP Chief Executive Officer, Elizabeth Woods says the Regional Network Program is a positive step towards building a strong return to work culture in regional Queensland.
"The Regional Network Program allows our representatives to listen to the needs of the local area and feed them directly back to Q-COMP so that we can ensure we develop appropriate solutions" Ms Woods said.
