May Project Update

We extend our gratitude to everyone who has participated in and backed the Workers’ Voice study thus far. It’s not too late to join in!

There are numerous avenues for workers who have filed a compensation claim, as well as their supportive family or friends, to participate.

We recognise that research may seem unfamiliar or intimidating to some. You have the freedom to decide how, or if, you wish to contribute by visiting our website.

The survey remains accessible until 11:59pm (AEST) on Friday, May 31st, 2024, after which the data will undergo thorough analysis.


What happens after the survey closes?

We aim to recruit about 500 for the survey, enrol 25 injured workers and 25 family members
and carers in the one-on-one interviews and from there, we’ll invite some of those people to be involved in a series of workshops.

We’re planning three workshops with 5 or 6 people. The workshops are where we really get
into the development of these models. We’ll present them with an initial model, get their
response to that, play around with it, change it, get more feedback, revise it and have another workshop.

We’ll do that process until we get to the point where we think we’ve got it right.
which will most likely take 6 to 12 months.

What is computer modelling?

Ever heard the term ‘computational modelling’ and have no idea what it means? Join Associate Professor Jason Thompson as he gives a short explanation of the importance of using computer modelling in the Workers’ Voice study. We aim to design and model a system that reflects the experiences, views, and preferences of people who have made a workers’ compensation claim, in the last 10 years.

There’s still time to get involved!
