A key goal of compensation research is to improve policy and practice within injury compensation systems, but realizing the benefits of evidence-informed policy and practice requires a shift in thinking and practice. In this plenary, Dr. Alex Collie describes the development of a consensus statement in Australia and New Zealand regarding the use of research evidence in personal injury compensation policy and practice. The statement identifies eight major factors affecting the uptake of research evidence and six opportunities to improve uptake.
