Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP)

PGAP is an evidence-based approach to reducing or preventing the severity of disability, health conditions or injuries. It aims to reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation, and our team supports clients to achieve their goals through targeted treatment, goal-setting and problem solving.

Task analysis

Our Occupational Therapists are available to undertake a detailed examination of the skills and physical demands for a particular task or duty at work.

Ergonomic assessments

Ergonomic assessments are important in both office settings and industrial environments. Any place where a worker is conducting repetitive tasks for long periods of time can lead to a risk of injury. We’ll evaluate factors to reduce the risks involved in an individual’s work area.

Manual handling

We provide training on safe manual handling, to minimise risk from injury when it comes to physical and manual work.


iCare is the NSW work health and safety regulatory body. Our iCare case managers can provide treatment and assessments as required.

Occupational Therapy assessments

Workplace assessments

Our experienced Occupational Therapists can carry out workplace assessments at a place of work, looking at the requirements of both the worker and the employer.

Case management

We offer complex case management services, to help with discharge planning and care coordination following an accident or injury.

ADL assessments

Activities of Daily Living (ADL) assessments are conducted by our Occupational Therapists, to assess a client’s current functionality at home in terms of their personal care and domestic activities.

Initial assessment

An initial assessment will look at your capabilities, and assess your physical ability as it was before your injury, and as it stands now. This will then inform plans for treatment and return to work.

Return to work new employer

Returning to work with a new employer means understanding the training requirements and specific needs of your potential new role. We’ll also look at job suitability, and each individual’s work capacity.

Return to work same employer

Getting back to work safely benefits everyone. We’ll assess risks and barriers, and put a plan into place with the aim of working back up to full capacity. We’ll assess risks and barriers, and put into place a plan with the aim of working back up to full capacity.
