Members of the Independence Works network share a belief that occupational therapists make excellent case managers, due to the nature of their philosophy, training and the professional roles that they occupy.
The therapists in the network all aim:
We are all
members of specialist clinical and case management groups and are committed to continuous professional development.
- To enable clients to achieve optimal restoration of function and personal independence.
- To enable clients to return to previous roles, including paid or voluntary employment, study or other purposeful occupation.
- To facilitate provision of equipment or resources needed to participate in the occupation e.g. assistive technology, furniture, cooking utensils, adaptive clothes and computers.
- For clients to have information about and appropriate access to statutory services and all other relevant resources.
