The Next Generation of Better Health
In July 2019 Back2Work, powered by The Better Health Generation, launched our PhD program – The Next Generation – a collaborative, international partnership between The Better Health Generation (TBHG), The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) and the Université du Québec à Montréal in Canada (UQAM).
We currently have six research projects that will address barriers and constraints in transitioning from unemployment to employment, enhancing job seekers employability and how community-based employment services can enhance their specialised expertise into innovative strategies.
