Our Collaborative care approach ensures the patient’s well being is always at the centre of our care. This enables our physiotherapists to develop a Care Plan that is individualised to our patient’s specific needs, environment and care supports. The Care Plan is developed to address the multifactorial barriers which prevent the patient from achieving their optimum physical function. Communication of the Care Plan with all relevant parties is essential to maximise patient care and outcomes. The Care Plan will be specific to the individual patient and may include various resources that the PhysioXtra Rehab Centre provide. Our physiotherapists use valid and reliable outcome measures to record the patient’s progress and towards achieving their treatment goals. No Care Plan will commence without the approval of the relevant people.
