RACP MAIC Research Awards

MAIC logoThe Queensland Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) is the regulatory authority responsible for the ongoing management of the Compulsory Third Party scheme in Queensland. One of MAIC's functions is to promote research, education and infrastructure to reduce the number of motor vehicle crashes and facilitate rehabilitation of injured people.

The RACP MAIC Research Awards support and promote research capacity and capability to improve knowledge on:

  • medical conditions or illnesses which cause or contribute to motor vehicle accidents (MVAs)
  • medical treatments or approaches that improve health outcomes for people involved in MVAs
  • rehabilitation of people who sustain a temporary or permanent disability through MVAs
  • improving longer term outcomes of people injured in MVAs including:
    • pain management
    • community re-integration
    • psychosocial, mental health and vocational outcomes

The Awards are tenable in Queensland but considerations are made if there is a demonstrable benefit to the state of Queensland from research being undertaken elsewhere in Australia.
