Across the past 12 months, the Rewire team have been engaging in training and education to work more as an interdisciplinary team (IDT) and have undertaken a pilot with a small number of clients at each hub to better embed interdisciplinary practice into service delivery.
Over the next 12 months we will continue to support staff to engage in IDT work by expanding this practice to more of our clients, and to use GAS to measure client progress and effectiveness of therapy.
Spotlight – New Service: Dietetics
In 2020, the Rewire team welcomed a new position and discipline to the team with the introduction of a dietetics service.
Our first Dietician officially joined the BISA team in July 2020 and has been working with our participants closely since to promote healthy eating for recovery post-brain injury. Adding to this one-on-one service, we have also established a monthly cooking class at each hub, providing an opportunity for participants to get together, socialise and to learn simple yet healthy and yummy meals.
Due to demand and interest, we are looking forward to extending this program to offer a baking group in the next financial year, to complement our primary cooking group.
