What is Occupational Rehabilitation?
Occupational Rehabilitation is the process of assisting a worker’s return to work and life following injury or illness. Occupational Rehabilitation organisations also provide preventative and educational services to workers and employers about the health benefits of good work and how to manage injury and disability in the workplace.
Rehabilitation Consultants are health professionals that play a critical role in delivering Occupational Rehabilitation services, including the provision of assessment, case management, counselling and other service provisions to support injured clients to achieve their recovery and return to work goals.
Rehabilitation Consultants work in multidisciplinary allied health teams and use their clinical knowledge and reasoning in a non-clinical setting to advise and advocate a client’s treatment across multiple stakeholders, to achieve the best outcomes.
