Seeking your Views: TAC Occupational Therapy Assessments

The OT@Deakin Research Group is currently undertaking a project for the Transport Accident Commission, reviewing assessments used by occupational therapists. After a series of consultations, they will make recommendations for the adoption of a new suite of assessment tools. These new tools should reflect contemporary practice in occupational therapy, with a focus on the transport accident insurance context. No identifying information from consultations will be included in the review.

Forms included in the review are:

  • Equipment prescription form
  • Functional independence assessment: attendant care and allied health services recommendations
  • Occupational therapy functional independence review
  • Overseas attendant care request form
  • Occupational therapy: home services needs assessment
  • Occupational therapists: Client home modifications assessment
  • Transport needs assessment
  • Vehicle needs and modifications assessment
  • Allied health treatment and recovery plan
