Rehabilitation Case Management

OHRS Rehabilitation Case Management is a service that provides injury management with a vocational focus where appropriate. This service includes:

  • Initial Needs Assessment
  • Development of an Initial Rehabilitation Plan in liaison with the insurer or funding body, the client and their family, the GP and Medical Specialists, and any other key stakeholders
  • Execution of the Rehabilitation Plan, including case management activities such as organising medical and rehabilitation assessment and treatment, transport assistance, liaison with key stakeholders to ensure attainment of plan objectives where possible, psychosocial support and strategies, functional and realistic goal setting
  • Occupational therapy services within the context of the client's presenting needs (usually requested separately from case management services)
  • Progress Report at the end of the plan period and subsequent Rehabilitation Plan or Discharge Report as appropriate

OHRS provides Rehabilitation Case Management for a wide variety of clients, including acquired and traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, orthopaedic injuries and psychiatric injuries. We provide services to bodies including, but not limited to, Insurers, the Lifetime Care and Support Authority (LTCSA NSW), the Transport Accident Commission (TAC VIC), the OPC and self funded clients. We offer a holistic and goal centred service focusing upon the transition to return to work where appropriate, and valued life goals in all cases moving clients towards a better quality of life and healthier outcomes to minimise ongoing rehabilitation and life health costs. We offer an active style of Rehabilitation Case Management, whilst understanding the need for referral on to other therapeutic modalities as required and as deemed reasonable and necessary.

Rehabilitation Case Management interventions provided include goal setting; organisation of medical and rehabilitation appointments; travel assistance; direct accompaniment to appointments where required and in consideration of cost effectiveness versus support needs; cognitive strategies and retraining; psychological monitoring and active referrals; psychological support and interventions including a cognitive behavioural approach which may include counselling, purposeful goal setting, optimistic reframing and a Mindfulness based approach; and all referrals on to suitable health professionals as appropriate in liaison with the funding body.

Any OT-specific interventions such as OT activities of daily living/living skills assessments, OT driving assessments, energy conservation, work simplification, manual handling, workplace assessments and functional capacity assessments are regarded as separate and thus requested separately from funding bodies. Rehabilitation Case Management plans are provided on a regular basis, predominantly 3 monthly however when a monitoring role is indicated then plans are usually provided on a 6 monthly basis after liaison with funding bodies. This is then considered Long Term Case Management rather than Rehabilitation Case Management and this distinction is achieved after liaison with funding bodies.
