Continuing Development Session
Every month the Physios from our Plympton and Beverley Physio practices meet for a group Continuing Development session, so we can continue to develop and improve our skills.
For our March session we were lucky to have John Rossi from our Christies Beach Physio practice visit us to present a review on conducting Worksite Visits for our work injured clients!
During the session John covered topics such as:
- Who would benefit from a Worksite Visit
- How to perform a Worksite Visit &
- What recommendations we could provide following a Worksite Visit.
He also took us through some practical examples to work through as a group and shared his experiences of conducting these visits for his work injured clients.
Worksite Visits For Injured Clients
These Worksite visits are a really valuable way to help us, as your treating Physio, better understand your workplace and the unique physical demands of your job.
By gaining a deeper understanding of this it allows us to more concisely recommend suitable work duties, tailor your physical rehab program to build you towards your normal work duties and also potentially recommend changes to your work duties, that may assist both in your recovery now and also reduce future injury risk for both you and other staff.
If you have a work related injury please discuss with your Physio about whether a Worksite Visit may be of benefit to your management.
