Role of the single allied health practitioner

The single allied health practitioner’s role includes:

  • conducting appropriate assessment, goal setting in conjunction with the injured person and providing the best treatment to help the injured person achieve their goals
  • providing treatment for injuries sustained in the motor vehicle accident to enable the injured person to resume participation in pre-injury activities that have been restricted by the motor vehicle accident related injuries
  • empowering the injured person to manage their injury and recovery
  • monitoring progress towards the injured person’s goal (for improved capacity/function) and adjusting the treatment plan as required
  • communicating and collaborating with key parties (for example, general practitioner, other allied health practitioners, case managers, rehabilitation providers and insurers) to achieve common goals.

At all times, practices need to adhere to the relevant professional code of conduct and/or legislation of the relevant board or association.

The single allied health practitioner role does not include:

  • making referrals or coordinating the injured person’s return to work
  • advocating for the injured person in relation to the management of their claim or coaching them through litigation or other compensation processes
  • providing services that are not related to the injuries sustained in the motor vehicle accident.
