The value of knowledge sharing is well known yet much knowledge remains unshared within a community unless opportunities are created.
A strength of the TMF is its potential as a learning community. There are many examples of effective risk management programs being implemented across the Fund and risk professionals are enthusiastic about sharing their experiences and insights with their colleagues and peers in the sector. The TMF Communities of Practice are examples of long established forums for knowledge sharing.

NSW Commission of Audit - Improving return to work outcomes in NSW Government Agencies
Suncorp Risk services in consultation with icare Self Insurance (formerly NSW SICorp) and WorkCover (SafeWork NSW) completed the Return to Work Project that reviewed some specific aspects of return to work in TMF agencies.
The main driver for this project was the NSW Commission of Audit Report, 4 May 2012. The Commission recommended that SafeWork NSW and icare Self Insurance should jointly prepare instructions clarifying the following:
1. The injury case management function that is to be performed within agencies and how this complements and differs from the function performed by the TMF Claims Agents;
2. The appropriate qualifications that agency injury case managers are required to hold; and
3. The optimal number of injury case managers that should be employed by agencies by applying relevant benchmarks.
