Our Focus Areas For March

Each week we run clinical “Roundtables” and “Team Meetings” where our EPs all discuss ways we can improve our service and continue upp’ing our game as the no. 1 premium Exercise Physiology service in the country. Here’s what came from our chats in March:

  1. It’s imperative to maintain frequent communication with Rehab Providers:
    – Before Initial Assessments to align rehab direction and goals
    – After any Progress Assessments to discuss, debrief and continue aligning rehab direction
    – Prior to the last 2 sessions of the program to reinforce the self-management plan and empower the RP to help the client manage without us
  2. We want to request more feedback after the closure of programs from our clients/customers, Case Managers, Injury Management Advisors, Rehab Providers, Occupational Therapists and other parties involved in claims to ensure we’re always providing value through our service***Note to Readers***

    If you would like to provide unsolicited feedback this is always welcome and appreciated! Email or call Director Brad Domek – brad@specialisedhealth.com.au  0405 321 406 or fill out this survey any time you’d like


Thanks agains to OnePath for having Director, Brad Domek, and EPs Anirudh Parthiban and Chantelle Wardini in to chat to Claims Assessors about how Exercise Physiology based health and wellness programs can be used to help customers in their recovery journey… In between the smoothie drinking and strength competitions!

Programs – New and Exciting! 

We are excited to announce that our Reconnect program which is a 4 week wellness program for mental health client’s is underway with a leading Life Insurer. We’re helping to kick start their rehab process by focusing on 4 key pillars of health being Exercise, Nutrition, Sleep and Stress Management.

We’ve had pleasing results already with the first customer of the program reporting a 23% increase in their perceptions of function after the 4 week program. Well done to our Adelaide EP Tessa Thurston!
