Our physiotherapists are well-versed allied health professionals that conduct on-site work assessments for employers. This service reviews a worker’s ability to perform the duties associated with their role. Fitness for duty includes a review of task analysis, a physical assessment based on the inherent job requirements, and a detailed report outlining what parts of the role the worker is able, or unable to perform. Suggested modifications may be included if appropriate. These assessments are available throughout Victoria.
IIME also provides neuropsychological fitness for duty assessments. An extensive interview and evaluation is conducted by a clinical neuropsychologist who reviews a worker’s personal history and current status; physical, communication, cognitive, behavioural/emotional, activities of daily living and current treatment. The detailed report includes results and findings from the assessment as well as answers to any questions that an employer may have, particularly regarding a return to work.
IIME are able to schedule appointments with allied health professionals within four weeks of request. Quality and concise reports are generally produced by a health expert within six weeks of the initial assessments.
